A nice bolted route to the left of The Carbon Stage. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Climbs a line of 7 bolts to a lower off left of The Carbon Stage. Climb up some interesting slate features with the odd small hold, before the slate turns to dolerite, steep moves on the green dolerite will hopefully gain the lower off.

Glad Bren coxed me into this awesome route. Glad I can still climb after a month off!

Love it, thin move going left at start unless you are uncommonly lanky. Flows beautifully afterwards.

Quite a tricky route with crux probably between 1st and second bolt. Went left to finish could go right but v. Difficult looking move. Overall good and varied route.

Balancy climbing, nice route, thought provoking moves and much very smooth rock. Climb was going well until 2nd last bolt when it started raining. Hauled myself up the rope to finish.
