Rockfax Description
The thin crack that runs up to the grassy col gives a pleasant pitch. Climb the crack to its end at a small overlap then step out right and head for the ridge and the abseil tree. © ROCKFAX

ascended the back way by the ash tree takes you to the top, lots of in situ gear to use though looks a bit tired after the winter

Nice climbing. 1St section of crack felt steeper than it looks.
BloodyJam - Apr/15

Good clean climbing after the first vegetated section. A good line and moves, deserves its 2nd star in the newest rockfax guide, but needs more traffic to keep clean. Pulled out fair bit of stuff on the main climb on abseil but need some prober tools to sort out the bottom bit.

Very worthwhile route with plenty of gear. Needs a bit more mileage to clean up the first 6m.

Nice crack line. Dovedale is a very pleasant setting. Lots of posing to crowds going on! :)
