32m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Lovely climbing on an enticing line, and with much better gear than first appearances would suggest. Start below a slim snaking groove-system where the upper overhangs fade.
1) 4c, 28m. Climb to the first band of overhangs and step up into an open groove. Follow the open groove to its end at the next horizontal break before stepping left and up into the final rounded groove. Intricate climbing up the groove gains a small tree and nut belay.
2) 4a, 20m. Climb above the stance, moving rightwards to the base of a wide rounded crack. Move insecurely up the crack to a small tree and finish on easy ground to Lunchtime Ledge. © Rockfax

Finally got round to giving this a go after being initially put off by the run out at the end of the 1st pitch. It isn't as bad a people make out. Good gear all of the way up. Climbed in a 3 with Ash and Jake, I led the first pitch and Ash led the second.

Olly led the first pitch and didn't enjoy it by the sounds of things. The gear is good but spaced and hard to find at times. 2nd pitch pretty much just stroll up the crag whatever way works. Disconcerting watching the belay tree move at the roots with the wind.... A few good storms and it won't be long for this world I reckon!

Felt a bit exposed in places, had to hunt around for good gear. Interesting climbing on good rock. Started raining as we got to Lunchtime Ledge.

Awesome route a bit scairy. Hard to place some of the gear. ^that was my original note to what I thought was Sinister but I realised 2 years later that the route I actually took was Clarion.

Good mid grade introduction to the dawn slab. First pitch is steep in places, sparsely protected and a bit delicate at the top.

Muny led. Testing but doable with lots of interesting challanges not least removing Muny's nut on the bit where he struck out slightly left to gain extra protection on this sometimes exposed pitch

First Gorge vs! Seeping rather badly, so had to climb to the left of the groove higher up. Gear not so good round the crux areas... fun though.

Led the 2nd pitch but straight through the face rather than using the groove. Thinner moves and less gear for more fun!

Red Rope last climb of season. Started with Clarian (Colin Lead) and then across lunchtime ledge and up Bobs Climb (Evan Lead) Colin, Tracey, Evan, Learnado, Me, Dafydd. Jooles had a go but backed off, as did Dave fisher. Was very wet at the time. Andrew stayed at the bottom. I was last up Clarian and, although the route was still damp, it wasn't too bad. I used my headtorch for both routes though. Felt good and confident and thought Bobs climb was superb, must have another look in the daylight! Then off to the Nova for a few pints.
