Rockfax Description
18m. The original and best? A ramp on the lower tier leads to a heather cornice and belay on the ledge. Gain the slab with difficulty then pass the big pocket and then the notch in the roof. © Rockfax

Bottom part was a laugh. Top was tricky at the bottom and I felt deserved an E point due to the boldness higher up!

From the ledge (the bottom is not worthwhile). Paul S lead it, slipped off the bottom move to the pad but then went back on and finished in style. Really, only the bottom couple of moves are hard, but it's very bold all the way up. Paul found a friend 0 to the left of the notch which might hold body weight that's about it! There's a sneaky nut 1 on the left to protect the belayer.

Top section (bottom was grotty), took few attempts to get established on the slab... Significantly easier afterwards.

Soloed the move off the ledge just to see if I could. I could, but it felt tough for 5b!

Couldn't get established on the slab. Didn't feel that the bottom section added anything whatsoever to the route - recommend starting on the ledge.

andybuckley 12/Apr/09 2nd dnf

Neither of us could boulder out the first moves on the upper slab. Lower tier pitch pointless. Time to retreat!
