Rockfax Description
The best route of this grade in the valley and well worth the walk up. Bridge up the superbly-positioned groove with the feeling that the entire world is beneath your feet. There is a thread belay at the top. © Rockfax

this is not a 3 star classic, loose and had a fall on very poor gear due to lowering as blocks were loose.

Definitely beyond my skills to lead this route at this stage, but top roped it ok.

Bridging is the key. No dramas this time.

The column of tottering blocks on the left is a pretty cool feature - I put a sling round it for a laugh... Good, thoughtful bridging above with gear wherever you want it. Combined with the feeling of exposure, definitely worth the visit. I think fair for the grade, though might feel a bit out there for a new VS leader.

Very good indeed. I didn't have a problem with the loose looking start. Thoughtful bridging with the odd strenuos pull.

the dodgy looking rock at the start can be avoided followed by excellent climbing to the top just be careful topping out more loss rock

Lead clean on sight. Scary loose looking blocky tower on left, better above. Bridged virtually all the way up. Plenty of good gear, apart from run out but easy exit to the left.

Worth its 3 stars. 'Jenga' does sound about right though, be careful what you weight.

Quality route, really good climbing all the way, with plenty of good gear, and lots of bridged rests. Holds are never really jugs till the top, but its never that hard.

After a second time, absorbing climbing, but if not for the exposure would be HS. Stacks of gear.
