Rockfax Description
A good route which uses the start of Eight Gauge to gain the fine crack to the left of Brazen Buttress. Climb the pillar on the front right-hand side of the through cave, then step right onto a ramp (as for Eight Gauge). Follow the ramp to a crack in the smooth wall. Climb the crack and another crack on the right until the wall blanks out above a jug. Make a tricky move up and left to easier ground. © Rockfax

The chalked holds at the top that everyone seemed to be using went a different direction to the Rockfax topo, not up and left from the jug, but first right into the next crackline, then up and left at the top much higher.

Nice enough despite a bit of suspect rock. Some fiddly gear and tricky moves, easy E2.

roof was fine, tough and thin move up top though I suspect I am just spooked out by this wall in general. Good lead by Stads

Quite pumpy climbing. Brilliant route, awesome jug pulling to get onto the pinnacle then wall climbing to the top. Crimpy crux.

Fantastic start, followed by some good climbing. Hung around on the jugs for some time whilst I figured out the crux moves. Awesome bouldery finish 30m up the route.

Fantasic climb with a cool start followed by an amazing crack with the crux right at the top. The top is fine if you find the crimp quickly.

Puzzling climb. The normal start is more like E3. Coming in from Brazen Buttress makes a much better E1 5c, finishing up the crux of Tempest.
