Rockfax Description
This long single-pitch is one of the most popular routes on the crag (therefore a bit polished), upgraded by popular demand. Take plenty of quickdraws. The start is the crux, but the thin slab above provides an interesting finish. Descend by abseil. © Rockfax

stopped at the lower off on the left. felt hard for 6a+ but it was a bit windy. didn't like it much either. I wasn't surprised when my belayer announced that we were on the 6c on the left (we weren't!)

finished at mid height lower off!never 6a+,nearer to 6c and very hard with rusting bolts!not worth doing in my opinion!

Great climbing but felt hard for the grade and quite scary. Lots of rusty bolts to help sow the seed of doubt.

A long, sustained pitch, trying to avoid thinking about how reliable the chain bolts were

Neil R 28/Nov/05 2nd

Steep route, only just managed to second.

Paul Robertson 26/Nov/05 2nd O/S

Once the hard section is reached it keeps on coming. Several sections of balance moves, two sections of steep moves. Physically and emotionally intense. Probably the best route of the week.
