[Keelhaul, Arrr!, 3 kb]30m. The last of the trio takes a line up the wall directly below the overhang. Climb up to the right-hand of the two left-facing grooves, move up slightly rightwards then trend back left to a split in the overhang. Heave over this and finish up the crack. © ROCKFAX

A block over the roof with well worn gear placement behind came off without very much encouragement. Take great care on this and surrounding routes. Great climbing though.

Frank the Husky - 2014

Great route.
Dibdawg - Lead O/S - 13/Oct/13 with Richard Lade

A bit damp. The rock here was like a glass... Super slippery! And the damp rocks suck chalk instantaneously. Although there were enough pros, I was properly scared, not knowing how much trust I can give to the friction, as well as to the gear put in super-slippery cracks... Psychological climb, and in that sense this is definitely for leading. E2 for the head.

Matt Cooke - Lead O/S - 24/Aug/13 with Sam Taylor

Great route, boldish start, a hard move stepping left with gear below you. Then some fun steep climbing to finish.
James Oswald - Lead O/S - 24/Aug/13 with Clare Erskine

Very nice. Pleased to discover that the roof wasn't the crux!

Bit slippery on the lower wall, as very sunny and sweaty hands. Roof is not hard, but missed the gear just above, so got a bit run out. Great route.

This was hard work for me, even seconding. The section on the wall was technical and crimpy, then the moves pulling over the overlap was strenuous.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 20/Apr/13

Good moves, but I was glad they didn't feel hard as it was nice and greasy and I didn't have anywhere near enough chalk. Felt like I could have pinged off holds on the slab several times!
