Ruwa* 5a
162m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Pleasant enough despite the scrappy sections.
1) 5, 30m. Climb the runnel in the wall below the ramp to a possible stance, then continue straight up the fine slab. It can be approached more easily up the ramp from the left.
2) 3, 18m. The shrubby ramp leads to a large ledge system.
3) 5, 32m. Climb the rib to a small overhang, then trend left to a wall. Up this, then follow a crack before trending right.
4) 5, 30m. Climb a short crack in a groove before trending right up easier ground to an exit up a shrubby gully.

Dean pitch 1, alternate from there onwards. Belay stance at the end of the third pitch was uncomfortable.

Was a brilliant climb
lewiswilson - AltLd O/S - 18/Apr/15 with deanhorsburgh

Nice climbs. Dean had 1st and 3rd pitch, I did 2nd and 4th pitch. Last pitch had a challenging first move but was enjoyable.

Gave Joe the more difficult pitches and had an easy ride up. Loose rock in abundance higher up the crag, so a helmet is essential. Joe pulled off a block but thankfully didn't follow it to the bottom!

Another excellent offering from the Toix crags. 1st & 3rd pitches were very long, loads of rope drag on 3rd pitch which wanders quite a bit. The higher you climb the looser it becomes, so take care! Although the grade is lower than for Cilber, it's more sustained and gives just as much entertainment

Excellent adventure. Simulclimbed first two and a bit pitches (~12m of rope). Last pitch can reach the abseil station in the notch by the tree - red arrow points to it - and then one full 60m rappel to the bottom.

led pitches 2 and 4. jason led the 1st pitch up the direct start, which I struggled to get up as so hot day and hardly any handholds.

direct start is tricky. one scary moment climbing above belayer on an overhang for the final pitch

konna - AltLd O/S - 26/Mar/09 with John Roe

Connor did the "direkt" start and strung the first two pitches together. I led the 3rd and 5th, the 3rd wasd scrappy and the 5th was great for the first 10m (crux) then meandering to the abseil point.
