Rockfax Description
Move easily up to a block-ledge at the start of the zig-zag crack. Well-protected moves up the initial crack lead to a committing traverse left on hollow but good holds. Pull into the continuation crack (good wires) then finish slightly leftwards up easier ground. © Rockfax

The "hollow but good holds" turned out to be not That good as they came away in my hands. The traverse seems somewhat harder because of it, more like E1. Protection after the traverse is hard to place And not inspiring. Not worth doing.

Lead clean. Straight- forward starting moves (good pro). Climbed a little too high before the hand traverse and had to down climb but at least it gave me a high runner for the traverse! Scariest bit was very precarious placing of gear after the traverse. Easy finish up the pinnacle.

Top roped clean on sight. Protection looks a bit sparse in places but the moves are all do-able. Enjoyed the traverse once I got onto it. Want to come back and lead it now!

Very fingery crack with a hollow flake at the crux! Aptly named: the top gear was so insecure, it just lifted out... :o

Fell off the traverse! TR'ed it after and it felt fairly hard?

No really hard moves but steadiness helps when placing wires at the rest after the traverse.
