An extremely bold undertaking. From the peg in the flake on Witch Hunt, step right and climb a scoop. Pull up onto the wall above and follow a faint flake to its end. Step right and climb direct to a grassy finish. © ROCKFAX

Clean on a shunt from just above the water line, will sort out gear and go for the lead next time. Great climbing with a big run out in the middle.

Took the monster lob from half way up the run-out! Amazing route once it leaves Witch Hunt, went for the onsight but pumped out. Will be back, for sure.

Abbed the line. A rather overhyped guidebook description.

Brilliant moves in the hard section - felt around 7b+ (Alex said 7c but he's a shorty). Bomber gear then a big runout, would be hard/scary to onsight, but felt steady when you have the sequence dialled. First E7, first headpoint.
Mike Goldthorp - Lead RP - 22/Aug/10 with alex mason

Great lead by Mike. He commited to the run-out section without any faff. Brill route
