Rockfax Description
A stout exercise with a problematic initial wall, and a gradually steepening finale. Start just right of the Cocytus groove beneath a tiny corner/ramp.
Climb the deceptively-difficult ramp boldly to the first bolt, then make some fierce, fingery moves above this to an easing. The arching wall above is furnished with some decent, but spaced holds. Lower-off. © ROCKFAX

Clipped first runner on cocytus 2nd time round. Makes it much safer with a light belayer.

Went quite easily so must be soft!
Joe Costello - Lead RP - 04/Jun/15

climbing to the first bolt onsight is pretty damn bold. Chickened out and preclipped it via cocytus, then fell at crux anyway. After a quick look and putting the rest of the quickdraws in went 2nd go. Superfun climbing!!

Brilliant route with a bit of everything
Michelle W - Lead RP - 19/Oct/14 with Bron

V close to the onsite, popped of crux, pulled ropes and did second go straight away. Only a couple thin moves really.

Luke Dawson - Lead O/S - 27/Apr/13

Brief play on the crux moves then led first go. The rock quality at the top is amazing!
Ed morris - Lead RP - 20/Apr/13 with Colin

once a good crux sequence was found it went easily today.
misterb - Lead RP - 17/Jan/13 with nick

2nd go. Could really do with another bolt or three. Enjoyed the moves. Good idea to extend 2nd bolt, to avoid decking potential.

Broke my foot on first attempt in August so had to come back and send those demons to sleep, bolts not very sportingly placed so still has the E5 dartmoor guide feel to it! Be warned!
eddieclimb - Lead RP - 01/Dec/09 with Rebecca Edwards

Blew the on sight by missing a foothold! only 1 short hard section followed by no hands rest and a steep wall on good holds
Billg - Lead RP - 28/Jun/09 with James Kauntze

A wonderful surprise to get this. Made up for getting burnt off on Empire by burning off the other lads on a hideous slab move (you don't have to hang around on and lock off the tweaky LH crimp if you get a high R foot and gaston/ lay away a seam.
Paz - Lead RP - 22/Sep/08 with AB, MT, EB

Probably not -too- bad but horrible in the heat.
