Rockfax Description
A worthwhile variation on Dexter. Start as for Dexter just left of the corner that drops down from the upper approach-ledge.
Climb the wall to a widening crack and follow this on excellent holds for a few metres until level with a line of weakness on the right wall. Move out right along the line of weakness and, from where it fades, reach right to a rounded shallow crack.
Take the flake above leftwards to the finish of Dexter. © Rockfax

Soggy pocket/dish, really fun route

Stickle Tarn 23/Jul/15 Lead O/S

Went a little too high up the crack before making the traverse. Tried to under cut the large flake directly above the start (should have payed more attention to the guide book!). Down climbed a little and got back on the correct line. Superb climbing but a little bit of an eliminate; one really reachy move and your on decent holds all the way up !

Excellent, really enjoyed this. Thought it was pretty hard for the grade.

Damm. A great lead by Andrea, I found this to be a tough route.

An interesting route, particularly the top out move which seemed to be standing on a bulge to what, at the time, was a sopping wet blind pocket.

kateharborne 13/Jun/15 2nd dog

Slipped on the reach move across the face. Otherwise a really fun climb.

Climbed in proper mist which made the holds wetter as you went along without you realising.

I could not quite get established in the undercut flake on the first attempt. Needed some thought.

Went the wrong way, slapping right too early, from the jug below the undercut and fell off. Figured out which way it was meant to go (up to the undercut then right) and did it.

Fell off this several times a few years back so good to get back on it. Went very smoothly this time. Really enjoyable climbing on perfect granite. Would be three stars if you couldn't walk off it at a couple of points.

Took a reasonable sized fall going up for the undercut/sidecut, my gear popped out, good job i backed it up. Got near the top (after the long runout) and turned into a complete pussy!
