An upper wall testpiece that features a hard but well-protected crux. Start at a right-leaning crack, the base of which disappears into a hole in the ramp.Follow the crack pleasantly to a hand-ledge. Continue more steeply to where it thins, and make a couple of urgent pulls up the wall just left of the crack to an easy finish up a tiny corner. © Rockfax

Led w/ aiders - had to top step at end of crack on a dubious cam placement - exciting!

Damn, fell off above the crux! Not sure why, probably because a foot slipped. Completely unexpected and very annoying as I was almost on easy ground - had one hand on the break below the easy finishing corner. I was a bit above the gear and pulled Alastair off the ground, so went miles (best part of 10 metres) but didn't hit anything and had a very soft catch (thanks Alastair!). Had to reclimb most of the route! On the original attempt spent a while trying to figure out the crux (especially what to do with the feet), dropping down for a rest off the undercuts above the little ledge a few times. Doing it again after falling off wasn't exactly easy but knowing the moves helped a lot and I did them in a nicely controlled and technical way. Didn't fall off this time! Good route. The crux is an average 6a sequence and it's only about E1 to the little ledge, so overall I'd say an easy E3.

Stupidly rushed the crux first time as it was all getting a bit wet. Luckily the shower passed so pulled the ropes and engaged brain second time.

Still can't do this, fingers too fat for top of crack,feels desperate
|Tom Brierley Gore||24/Jul/14||Lead dog||
Very nice climb, but super hot day and i managed to forget chalk, making the crux way too slippery.

Only two hard moves, which I thought were very reasonable for 6a. Great climb!
|James S||12/May/14||Lead RP||
Woohoo! So happy to get this with relative ease this time after having to aid past the crux on the miserably failed on-sight attempt a couple of weeks ago!

On Simons gear, One more wonder, very good none the less!
Had memories this was very hard from last time so laced the crack with so much gear then walked up the top good to see progress
|Cheese Monkey||14/Apr/14||TR dog||
Did all the moves eventually. ..
|James S||04/Apr/14||Lead dog||
Found the crux move very hard today, just couldn't find the good hold in the crack. I've done the move in the past so know I can do it, just being a bit rubbish today, short on time for Tom to get back to work so aided past it to the first crimp and finished from there. Will be back soon!
Fell off at crux on mikes gear
|Mike Goldthorp||12/Sep/13||Lead O/S||
What a savage! Beaut climbing to start and then BAM! Crux slap to a poor hold, really go-ey but take your pick of the bomber cam placements.
an awful performance on this one. lead to the crux but too pumped after placing gear. on top rope i was even worse. Respect to Rich for a classy dispatch. 6b for shorties.
Last route of the day, bit tired but didn't find the crux too bad, just had to hang on the edges to the left of the crack.
|Daniel Heath||25/Jun/13||Lead O/S||
One last route to finish the day, quite pumped. 5 class routes in 3 hours!
Used partner's gear after he fell; flashed.

|Alex Winter||05/May/13||Lead rpt||
Laced it with gear. Nearly muffed the crux.

|James S||05/May/13||2nd dog||
slipped off the lower crack when a jam didnt quite stick and then took a couple goes at the crux. would go clean on lead before too long but not right now, must get stronger!
|Alex Winter||29/Apr/13||2nd O/S||
Nice one Nick.
|Nick Russell||29/Apr/13||Lead RP||
By the skin of my teeth, so pleased with the onsight. Just a short section on dreadful crimps and its all over, brilliant!
|Nick Russell||11/Nov/12||Lead dog||
I'll consider this progress - I actually got to the top on lead this time
|Luke Dawson||29/Sep/12||Lead O/S|
Took a few attempts as kept just missing the good hold
Ground up, 2nd go. Lots easier as ever once you faff less and climb decisively. Still hard moves though. Got rained on on my first go, and absolutely soaked topping out which was pretty sketchy in places!
|Ed Babs||15/Jul/12||Lead RP||
Hard and excellent

|Nick Russell||20/Jun/12||Lead dnf||
Took a couple of whippers off the crux, then the third time the cam blew and I decided to call it a day. I'll be back...
thought it was E2 before i started, thought it was soft for the grade at the top was pretty surprised when i was told it was hard E3
Feel guilty even logging as a dog. Would be a project to T/R clean, a lead feels a way off. Cool route though, deserves way more than a star.
|Dave 88||20/May/12||Lead dog||
Still pumped and scared from the previous route, made a complete hash of this. Had to aid the crux (A2?!), had a micro pop on me which was nice. Felt hard, generally made a dogs arse of things. Not my finest hour!
faffed put in to much gear, got pumped, got scared rested, then fell(let go) then eventually got to the top. unhappy but feel like making progress with committing on trad
|Stone Muppet||13/Apr/12||Lead dog||
Some joker had tickmarked a hold that was useless, and like a fool I lunged for it. Took the fall - got back on and to the top 2nd try.
|Nick Russell||28/Mar/12||TR dog|
|Mark Warnett||?/Mar/12||Lead β||
on Di's gear to halfway
|Toby Dunn||19/Nov/11||Lead O/S||
Second go, just couldn't figure it out first time. Easy if you get it right!
|Adam Lincoln||30/Jun/11||Lead O/S||
2nded after failing on lead - too pumped, first trad route for months

Spanked. Tip - watching someone else first just makes it more intimidating..... :)

|Justin T||12/Mar/11||Lead dnf||
Poor effort, couldn't figure out even roughly where to head on the crux and really struggled to shake off much pump on the ledge below. By the time I came off I was so wasted still couldn't do it even after resting on the rope so down-climbed stripping gear.
took a few goes to figure the move at the crack top, then found myself runout and pumped !
|Dr Caterpillar||08/Jul/10||TR dog||
er, got the moves sussed. Need more stamina before the lead...
|Dr Caterpillar||15/Apr/10||Lead dnf||
Got it 2nd try. Didn't think the crux was too hard but quite tricky to onsight.
There was some gear left in but I removed it all on lead and placed my own.
Third day on... Muppet. At least I've got it pretty wired now.
Hurray I actually fell off!
Jumped off so many times I made a fool out of myself. A kind passing celebrity retrieved my (bomber) gear
|just one more||29/May/05||Lead dog||
took a 60ft whipper on the first attempt and then got back on it and finished it. Thanks Nick for the belay!

Quite lungy and blind on the crux.
