50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The most popular on the face. The climbing is never very hard but the situation is intimidating. It can be climbed in one pitch.
1) 5b, 25m. Climb the flake and step right in the open groove (as for Monster Mash). From the top of this pull out rightwards and climb the wall above to the small ledge belay.
2) 5c, 25m. Follow a diagonal line of cracks up and leftwards past a large thread. Easier ground leads to the grass ledges and the stake belays at the top. © Rockfax

Really enjoyed this.

Atmospheric: no one else in the Leap and an incoming tide. Tried to climb P1 quickly to avoid Rachel getting wet feet - in the end there was plenty of margin. Exciting tricky moves round the roof and interest is maintained above. The threads are old but there's other gear available. All a bit damp but not really greasy, so average conditions I guess! Rachel got thr cleaner and drier second pitch. Well protected but harder moves. Tough E2 overall.

Nondescript line but fun adventure and nice to be in the leap. Actually meant to do the Honey Monster but got confused :)

Brilliant route, climbing out of the gloom, loads of gear, amazinf rock, interesting curxes, tough at E2 but not E3 it gets in the new CC guides.

Led P1, greasy as usual but not on the tricky section, much better climbing than expected especially on harder P2, approx 7 fresh threads insitu made it feel very friendly. 200th extreme.
