Rockfax Description
Originally this route started in the same place as Magazine People, but it is much better to start at the arete just left of Shape-Up (or the slab just left with a thread at 6a). This gives a good enjoyable pitch at a more even grade. From the top of the arete make tricky moves up onto a ramp, then continue to reach a traverse line under the roof which is passed by puzzling moves on its left-hand side. © Rockfax

Harder than 5c at the start. Pretty technical and sustained. Found the move to reach the ramp desperate!

Couldn't do the start :( think the beach may have dropped? Or am I just weak as sin. In my defence it was greasy and I am a fanny.

Maybe I went wrong but I found this hard and bold in places. And not that good, except the very top which had nice moves which felt nicely bold and was at least dry!

MichaelGallimore 12/Apr/15 2nd O/S

Dropped a wire so lowered to the ground to retrieve it. Then dropped my nut key and couldn't face climbing the starting moves a third time so left the nut key for the next tide to swallow.

Soft but I'll take E3 for this. Depends entirely on what you think of the peg protecting the crux

i thought this was simply brilliant! my first route in the Leap. sustained with tricky gear all the way and a sting in the tail. felt more serious than it should have done. i think this is fair at E3.

Great route though more like E3 than E2, a couple of the 5c moves are quite far above gear.
