Rockfax Description
The fine central line is now getting a bit worn but is still brilliant. The wider section of crack at two-thirds height is most problematic. Excellent climbing and usually occupied. © Rockfax

Got to half height without too much trouble, found it quite polished. Eventually got out of the niche only to drop my four large rocks - lowered down as felt pumped and didn't feel confident enough to continue without these pieces. Had climbed quite well - head was good and footwork not bad - though found the steepness and distance a bit intmidating and perhaps needed to be back in the groove of regular climbing as was as dwelling on the difficulties somewhat

Awesome route, one section where polish makes it difficult. The top 10m are amazing.

Now I've done it again and I must say it's harder than VS(4c).

Take lots of big gear and resist the temptation to place it all in the first 15m!

Both of us lead this, me first followed by chris, some of the bottom looked loose, good gear for the most part, ran the top 10m out finished with a smile!

johnboy3987 ?/May/05 2nd β

This was Chris's first ever lead, he had an absolute epic, stopping at half height for about 15 min, he was struggling to get gear in. I assured him it'd be fine, don't worry the gear'd hold him if he fell.... when I secconded it there wasn't one piece that'd have held anything at all. got to the top though so well done mate!
