Rockfax Description
14m. The classic of the crag, although protection could be better. From the grass ledge climb the groove to its end then step left and take the continuation all the way to the terrace and a tree belay. © Rockfax

Nearly two years since I last did it. More moss than I remember. Still great.

Deserves the stars, great route with a perfect mix of boldness & gear. Technical grade felt a bit harder than 4a, but new to Sandstone.

A good balancy route, thin on gear though so it feels like you're soloing most of the time.

Nice route with interesting moves, but solid rests between them. Saw more protection opportunities then I would have guessed, but none of them looked very bomber.
