Rockfax Description
The best E1 at Dinbren. A difficult start gains the huge juggy flake. Place some good wires then move right into the corner and bridge up this with a testing move to reach the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
An irresistable line with a devious start to gain the corner via a flake on the left. Typically mis-described in the Rockfax guide - the crux is precariously getting into the corner, the easy finish is about VS.

Felt pretty bold during the traverse and getting established into the corner. Cruisey from there!

thought i was on hyperdrive.. wondered why it was so cruisey.

First flaky handhold, below the hard move, has now disintegrated, presumably due to someone lobbing on to a wire behind it. Doesn't make the moves harder, but may mean less chance of a runner.

Hard start, nut popped when I fell off, thanks to Matt catching me I didn't deck out!

Good swing from the corner on a bit of gear in the flake after feet unexpectedly slipped off. Gritstone friction it ain't! Nice route though.
