Pippikin*** E4 6a

Rockfax Description
Another amazing hard route that has a butch start leading to a breath-taking upper groove.
1) 15m. As for Vulcan.
2) 6a, 35m. Move right to gain a crack next to a huge fang of rock and climb it steeply to a junction with Falcon. Follow this for a few metres then pull left towards a flake. Make hard moves up to a ledge then take a deep breath and set off up the groove past several tiny and uninspiring wires. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the steep crack 3m right of the start of Falcon, until you join it. Step left, and romp up a distinctly dodgy flake to a ledge. Then make a hard move past poor protection to enter the slim groove above.

Hard work. Perplexing and pumpy, then the damoclean flakes, then technical and intimidating rp-protected groove.
