Rockfax Description
18m. The direct line on the upper slab has a bold move or two and some nice positions. It looks a bit cramped from below but feels independent enough once committed. © Rockfax

Easiest 5b ever but no protection for the crux, if you fell you would hit the ledge below.

'One move but what a move'...a very apt description.

One nice move but not sure it's worth two stars on its own right.

Didn't take enough gear, did the crux above a bad tri-cam, Definitely didn't feel HVS in the circumstances.

2 hard moves on crap smears,but not very bold. VS 5a?

Substantially easier than Extraction (HVS) at the same crag. One move wonder, but the crash into the ledge if you fluff it would be unpleasant.

Moves felt very easy... Had already led it earlier in the day. Very nice though.

Franco wanted to lead it, but it was my turn to lead. It looked abit crap, so decided to 'jazz' it up a bit.

Shaky mid summer neckie grit ascent. Took ages to commit to one crux move which screams "this is going to be soooo easy" at you but for some reason you think otherwise. Mmmmm must remember that this winter!!
