[Bob Sanders on Rough Wall, VS 5a, Brimham Rocks, 4 kb]13m. The classic of the face with a tough but well protected moves. Climb to the overlap and pull leftwards through it. © ROCKFAX
A well known Brimham classic. Starts below the thin cracks high on the wall. Climb up the slab, using the horizontals for good friend runners. Move left from the RH crack to the LH crack. Plug in a couple of good pieces and make a technical and bold step to the top. Superb.

Bit of a 'one move wonder', but excellent fun and well protected. it turns out to be reasonably easy to place a solid wire in the top crack, from below, even if you don't have a big reach.

Started raining at the beginning of the climb meaning there was no friction at the bottom of the route. All the breaks seemed to be a little bit out of my reach, coupled with the rain this climb was hard even on second. Good stretch for the hips if you're small.

jadm2 - 2nd dog - 14/May/08 with Alan

all went smoothly (as it does) till the crux, which i fortunately absolutely laced with gear. Fell off, gear popped, repeated, fell off, threw toys out of pram after 4th dismal attempt and handed lead over to andy. "I'll be back"
