UKC Logbook Description
one of the best routes of its grade in wales! Long, sustained and brilliant. Climb up to the obvious groove (just left of centre) and break through the roof into some spicy climbing all the way to the top !

Cool route but 2hrs before dark is not enough. One to come back too.

Wow! Totally stunning route, got it 3rd rpt by the skin of my teeth! One of the best routes I've even done I the UK. Probably 8a IMHO

Such good climbing. Getting into the crux and after feel fine but the crux is hard. Kind of a one (very long) move wonder for me. Must try Air Show to see how it compares.

Dogged up it a couple of times to figure out the moves. Unfortunately a couple of soaking holds so didn't go for the red point. Crux feels good with a heel-toe.

1st go, 5th session. So chuffed to get this!

Did most of the moves on the dog, trotted to onsight but bailed on the move out to the lip. 1st redpoint, quality boulder crux

Nice. One of the best at this grade I have done in the UK!

Finally! After quite a few session over two season, this beast went down. Felt harder than the other six other 8a's I've done.

By far the longest period of time over which I've tried a route with the intention of sending it! Had my first go in 2012, a fair few sessions last year, and three this year. Did it first go of the session today, in great conditions. The crux felt pretty okay, and I just kept on going to the top. Arguably THE best sport route in South Wales, and a pretty proud tick for me.

Happy to get this done! First 7c+! Excellent route!

Punted up it.. Did all the moves, just lacking the stamina to put it all together. Amazing crux moves. Like every thing here very hard to read.

Brilliant Route, psyched to kick off the season with this.

Wet Holds!

One of the best sport routes I've done in the uk. Did 2nd go, and felt like 7c+ to me but can imagine it feeling harder if you're shorter than 6ft

feels hard, need to go back with more guns. Amazing line, it would be a 3 star route anywhere in europe

5th go. Great route with a cool crux straight into an amazing sequence at the top.
