Rockfax Description
A great route which is probably the most popular route on the wall, although that isn't saying much. Start at mid-to-low tide towards the left-hand side of the wall. Climb a crack through the roof and continue to a recess - a thread and a rest. Traverse left to a bottomless groove and climb this for 6m until it is possible to traverse left again around a hanging arete to the upper section of the left-hand corner of the zawn. Finish up this. The top is loose so a pre-placed rope down the last 5m is not a bad idea. © Rockfax

Took me a while - climbing very tentatively & getting pumped way too easy. Nothing too hard - E4 climbing in an E5 situation. Extended everything and was v careful where I placed gear - rope drag not too bad. Dangled a rope down for the top but didn't use it - shouldn't have bothered: it's fine & well protected if you're careful.

I've wanted to do this for a long, long time. A brilliant adventure route with some fine features along the way. Stupidly used up all my slings extending runners low down, as a result I suffered from drag in the upper groove, the top was pretty wild as a result (no pre-placed rope). Nice...

Awesome climb in a great position. Committing start. The hanging corner and swing around the arÍte are cool. Had to fight the rope drag up the final section.

What an adventure, great route. Make sure you take a lot of extenders with you. Climbed with a cockney accent!

Awesome route. A bit loose at the top, but not bad- didn't preplace the rope as suggested. 17 draws.
