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 !

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!
Dave Cale - Lead RP - 30/Jul/15 with rich, Tom Jefferies

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!
JM - Lead RP - 07/Sep/14 with Anna Reiners

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.
Ramon Marin - Lead RP - 16/Aug/14 with dave pickford

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.

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.
MorganPreece - Lead dog - 17/May/14 with Monty

Brilliant Route, psyched to kick off the season with this.
brices - Lead RP - 04/May/14 with Llinos

Wet Holds!
OERees - Lead dog - 08/Mar/14

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
Ramon Marin - Lead dnf - 25/Aug/13 with viki harvey

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