Rockfax Description
The line is up the left-hand groove of the big open corner above the ramp. Gain the groove from below and follow it to the roof. Pull steeply around this and finish more easily above. © Rockfax

Climbed it feeling really ill, just about held it together as I topped out and then proceeded to throw up over the belay, somewhat fitting.

Got a bit pumped and generally climbed badly & slowly. I couldn't seem to get gear in as easily as I should of at times and it felt a bit greasy too, so all in all a rubbish idea as a warm up.

struggled with this: no trad since early july, my first (sport) routes in just over 3 weeks 2 days prior to this showed noticeable loss of stamina despite recent work on longer boulder problems, sea got to me and a general lack of confidence. anyway, top quality Pembroke action which builds to a nice finish in a great position - enjoy!

Did this after pumping myself silly seconding 'The Butcher'. Very thuggy compared to The Arrow. I used up half my chalk constantly rechalking my hands as I procrastinated on the move up to the roof, and getting up to and through the roof took a lot of time and every last ounce of strength I had.
