Rockfax Description
The right-hand Slip is even more technical.
1) 5c, 35m. As for Leg Slip but move right at the top of the first groove below the roof to a ledge at the base of the beautiful upper groove. Climb this with sustained interest to a good ledge, either taking the blank groove direct, or by moving out onto the arete.
2) 4b, 12m. Easier climbing leads up the arete and rough ground to a tree belay. Abseil off. © Rockfax

Me P1 and JR P2. Pretty consistently hard throughout from under the roof! a great route though!

Mark Warnett ?/Jul Lead dog

thought this nails. went straight up groove and rope got profoundly stuck resulting in flapping and lowering on other rope. second time went back up groove and still thoughts nails, before discovering the actual crux! and I thought the gear was fiddly. maybe I was just tired!

Pete_Frost 29/Jun Lead O/S

P1 only as second couldn't follow. Tricky and technical but not strenuous. Had to go right onto arÍte to reach the belay ledge as the groove was too polished!

Moved right onto the arÍte on final curve which turned out to be hard! Probably better to stick to the curve I think - good route and the traverse under the overhang is simply excellent.

climberchristy 21/Aug/14 Lead O/S

Excellent line. Technically tough for 5c especially as head right on traverse and then topping out the following groove. Gear good but deserves E2 as moves hard.

Tried to lead but hangover-head failed to commit to the traverse (I also missed some high gear to protect it from above). Thankfully Helena took over and I seconded the main pitch instead. Hard but cool moves

with Helena Robinson

Took me a while to figure out that top move! But when committed it felt fine. Great route.

James Oswald 25/Sep/11 Lead O/S

Found this very hard, pushed me to the limit of what I currently feel I can lead. Well protected the whole way (LOTS of small wires) and gets harder as it goes. Lots of 5a, then a 5b traverse (after asking Clay to give me his small wires too!), then sustained 5b for 8 metres or so. Then one (or two?) 5c moves which required high bridging using small footholds. One of my favourite leads so far, a pity you have to climb some crap pitches to get out! Amazing.
