Rockfax Description
10m. From the top of the flake on the right, teeter round the corner and gain the shallow hanging groove with difficulty. Continue up the centre of the buttress taking the easiest line. © Rockfax

Felt hard for E1 given the lack of good gear and hard moves. Great route though.

Amazing, the moves flow perfectly. Much better as a solo, and the rest of it after the hard bit is really easy, severe or similar. One of myfavourite experiences, at a deserted crookrise, in the autumn sun, wahoo!!

Well. I fell off the start a couple of times - really pleased with this straight forward after the beginning.

2nd attempt, ground up (with some handy beta from a friendly local climber). Nice moves, flows really well when you get the sequence.

Followed the description rather than the topo and probably traversed onto the face a bit high (off the very top of the flake). Felt fairly uninteresting except for the almost total lack of protection.

one worryingly sketchy move on the traverse, the rest of it flowed nicely.
