Rockfax Description
Some find this the best climb on the wall, especially if you are tall. Climb the rib right of Barbarella (thread out left) then follow a line of holds up right to a small groove. Climb the groove (microswires and a peg) and make a hard move left to a crack and the first bomber wire. Move left again then back right and up to the break. Arrange gear above, then make an outrageous l-o-n-g move to a good hold with a thread. Finish any way you can above. © Rockfax

Dam. Fell off the rest before the top crux when an undercut snapped off. Pulled straight back on and did it.

Had a quick look on ab to check the thread was in, but the climbing was all onsight placing gear on lead. Not sure if I missed something because I found moving out left to the cracks much harder than the 'crux' higher up - maybe I was just a bit scared.

Ollie gave me all the gear beta. I wussed out of the start and put a side runner in barbarella, felt more like E5 6b like that

Bit sketch at the start but after that there's loads of kit. Crimpy crux!

Ground up, second go. Fell off the top crux trying to use Ross's onsight beta which skipped all the holds...

Tom Livingstone 23/Apr/14 Lead β

We stuck the gear in on abseil, then I flashed it. Brilliant route, absorbing climbing. Shame about my lack of style but not bad for first E6
