Rockfax Description
A good line on good rock with a testing but well-protected crux. Start on a boulder at the base of a low, left-trending crack in the centre of the wall.
Follow the crack left to its end and move up to a narrow ledge. Climb the slim corner above and traverse left to the base of a small staggered corner. Follow the technical corner and steep flake above to a final short wall and the top. © Rockfax

A hard climb, tricky crux to figure out, I did it differently to Alex & Rog.

Slumped below the overhangs after faffing around too long. Big jessie. The crux turned out to be fine. Gibbered my way up the rest of the route. Will be back.

Harder that 'Out of the Blue'. Found the crux quite pumpy but found a good no hands rest just before the crux which was very useful. Harder than it looks.

Good route. Had a bit of a spaz going from the corner to the flake crack. Not very happy with my protection on this, should have taken more big cams as the initial crack swallows them up and had none left for the rest of the route.

Great effort by Colin for a first E2. I suffered in the heat even seconding, maybe should have warmed up.

An inauspicious start to my trad season. Didn't find the alleged crux too bad, but lost the plot on the upper wall.

Good hungover lead by Emily and a great little route, worth two or three stars though not particularly sustained, weird to do a smeary, balancy crux on a steep wall!

Brilliant climbing, exciting even as second. Very well protected with a great crux which felt softish for 5c. Took one rest on the rope after the crux moves due to serious pump. Very impressive lead from Max.

Pleased with this, was a bit go-ey for a few moves.
