Roxette** 5a

Rockfax Description
Another huge pitch with lots of good climbing. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
5a in the new guide but seemed the hardest of the 4 long routes so more like 5b.
Probabaly around 40m, too long for a 70m rope. The sinsols belay is an option for getting down. Bolts are quite spaced.

5a but probably 5a+. Bolts as spaced as La Belge, but better climbing. Just about feasible with an 80m rope (we had 60m doubles).

This route really needs an additional bolt before the first one. Then there is a precarious move or two past the first (and second?) bolts which is about 5b+. The route then settles down at steady 5a/b, but the bolts are well spaced. Some threads and wires are available for the nervous. Managed it, just, on 70m rope with some downclimbing, but could be dangerous.
