Rockfax Description
The original line of this wall, which used to start up the tube until it fell down! Traverse out across the slab past a bolt before moving up and right to the rusty spike. From here, follow the groove up and left past a cam slot. A hard move past a bolt leads to easier climbing to the level above and belay way back off a spike and bolt at the base of the wall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A curious route above the broken pipe which is fast becoming popular. It has a reputation for being bold in places. Having tethered your belayer down, make a delicate rising traverse rightwards across the slab, past a bolt, to the rusting chain (sling at top) and slanting crack. Climb this via another bolt to finish.

Nice route. Relief after the first bolt. Bumped into Johny Dawes on the way in, he'd just completed it no handed.

Didn't have a sling so traversed back, only to fall on the traverse. Started the route again and happily climbed it clean. HVS?

I know I only seconded this, and I have only led one E1, but no way is it E1 :P the traverse is easy (4a?) to the first bolt, only moderately tricky to the chain (4b/c?), easy ladder to the second bolt (4b?), tricky move (5a) at the second bolt BUT you have a bolt right there, fantastic cam slot and a sling protect the rest. Really not that bold or hard, HVS 5a? All the hard bits are protected; if it didn't need a little care on the traverse then maybe even VS 5a!

Fairly steady up to the bolt, then tricky across to the chain, especially if you go too low as I did to start with (aim for the top of the chain). I felt a little overgeared though...2 bolts, a sling on the chain and a cam is all I placed.

Well protected (until the chain disappears the way of all things). Crux move, though the only move over 5, is very defined, thin and easily harder than anything on Seams the Same, a similar route running a unanimous 5b.. I think HVS 5b or VS 5b.

Awesome route, but I'm leaning more towards HVS (however much I'd like to say I've lead E1). Also not convinced the crux was a) near the second bolt and b) is anywhere near as hard as 5b (didn't know it was the "crux" move until I read the guidebook afterwards). Despite all this, it is an ace route and highly recommended!!

Had a good whipper off the last move before the metalwork at the end of the traverse, very thin move. Fell and hit the pipe but pretty much unscathed, got back on, got to the same point and couldn't man up and make the move, so reversed to start.

nice route, took a while to figure out the crux. Think it would be better without the bolts as you could get gear in.

Yet another excellent slate ascent. Loving the stuff. This one went cooly to the crack and then got messier at second crux (bolt). A bit of up & downing later got it sorted. Lots of fallen loose crumbs of rock in the holds though and various fragile bits (as usual on slate)

Bit mediocre really, expected much much more. Two bolts help to further detract from the atmosphere that it totally fails to live up to...

Had been a long standing wishlist route, ever since a picture of Joe doing it was put up in Brown's in 'Beris. Totally lived up to it.
