Rockfax Description
The long rib right of the groove is a fine pitch, quite high in the grade. There is a poor stance at 20m and a steep finish up the groove. The ground is 32m away. © Rockfax

Good fun climbing - had to re-rig the abseil part way down as we only had a 60m rope. Led as one pitch.

Simon Caldwell 25/Mar/12 Lead rpt

Hard 5+! Took me so long it was dark by the time I finished so no time for anyone else to try it. Much longer than the 36m stated - our 70m rope was a good 10 metres too short for the lower off.

UnkArl 10/Feb/12 Lead O/S

Only climbed up to stance at 14m. It's a bit scrappy up to that point.

Prob best done as 2 pitches as the rope drag gets unpleasant otherwise. 70m rope needed to lower off in one.

did it in two pitchs and lead the first

bpmclimb 17/Feb/09 Lead O/S

In one pitch (just) with a 70m rope - knot the end! We thought it 5+ and worth three stars. Deserves a better lower-off.

Had meant to lead it, but ended up seconding it so that Nick could get back to the ground. And then the heavens opened. And then the rope got stuck. But still a very nice climb - must go back and do it in the dry sometime
