Rockfax Description
One of the best pitches on the crag featuring sustained and technical climbing with generally excellent protection. Begin 4m right of the ground-level tree. Move up to a break and go left to a little corner with a peg above. From the peg move delicately left around the shallow rib to a slab beneath a slim crack. Follow the lovely crack past pegs to a horizontal break. Move left to a tree and climb the crack above to finish. © Rockfax

Awesome route. Mountain clag and spitting with rain - made the top licheny slab interesting!

Ed Booth 01/Dec/13 2nd O/S

Cool route. Hot aches, numb fingers and drizzly weather, not ideal.

Rested at a couple of sections, technical rather than very physical.

A great route, varied and sustained, with generally good gear. The initial traverse left was tricky and mildly bold. Hung around for ages below the last hard sequence on the crack section as couldn't see an easy way of doing it. It was a half rest at best so was slowly getting more pumped... In the end decided to go for it and with a crafty knee bar it turned out to be fine. A couple of hard sequences after the crack maintained the interest. I'd say solid E3 but bottom end 6a.

good pitch, tons of fixed gear.

Didn't really think it deserved ***, or 6a, but it's a decent route.

dissapointing route - wandering with unbalanced climbing
