Rockfax Description
14m. Start at a ledge (or more easily from the left) and climb the steep vague crackline until it is possible to trend right to resting ledges. Escape off left, or better, continue up the steep and pumpy wall above. © Rockfax

Deceptively pumpy climb to finish the day

Feels like this should continue upwards rather than treading rightwards. Nice moves at the beginning.

0.5 cam, 3/4 nut, 2 cam (dodgy), 1.5 cam. Had a horrible time on this. Mentally couldn't commit to the moves which need to be done fluidly and quickly. I had to put it together piece by piece. First moves - right jam, left layback, foot on edge to the right, left foot smear, left hand to edge, right hand to jug, jam feet.

Deacon lead this after I accidentally told him that it was hard severe. Really hard. 5b moves a fairly long distance above ones gear. E1 indeed

was hard and quite skechy at times good gear but only a few places to put them unless in small nuts range. had to climb above most gear placed and certain chance of decking before you get to the big shelf once on there pile the gear in again :)

It was bloody hard! The gear behind the crucial jug is pretty worrying too.

This is def E1, the gear is good lower down but for the crux its a crappy nut behind a hollow sounding horn. On my lead attempt i fluffed the crux and the gear behind the horn ripped,thanks to good belaying by john my bum only gently touched the floor after falling 30ft!
