Rockfax Description
A belter of a pitch which is slightly spoilt by the rest ledges. Climb Great Feet to the groove. Move right and climb up to the rather intimidating overhanging groove. Head up to the green ledge on the right, then step back left and climb the groove to the rest ledge on Mean Feat. Swing back out right and make some wild moves up the overhanging prow. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A great route with steep exposed climbing between good rests, and one of the best finishes anywhere! Climb Great Feet until the quartz jugs, move right and up to a ledge below the groove, then the green ledge up right. Swing into the groove and make committing moves to a rest on it's left rib. Regain it via jugs to a rest below the final wild prow. Take a deep breath and sail up this with maximum glee.

Outstanding pitch on a glorious day. Possibly more like pumpy E4 with good tactics but who cares.. Sublime

Also climbed this with Paul Platt in the late 80's. A brilliant pitch.

Sensational. Looks so innocuous from the floor because the lower slab makes it appear vertical. Super steep with good holds and plenty of gear until the top. I thought the rest ledges helped build up the anticipation. The top is wild, super exposed, and run out. You think it's all jugs up there but it doesn't feel like it once you leave the final ledge!

Wowee!! Totally wild! Certainly not the hardest E5 around technically, but being steep and fairly bold with some unobvious gear makes it feel pretty intimidating, certainly for me! I ended up doing some big run outs to avoid getting pumped hanging around placing gear that may have ended up crap. The run-out from the ledge to the top was very exciting. Seconding Anna up it I gave myself a fright realising how much I had run it out! First E5 of the year! GEAR BETA; when you move out left from the groove make a couple of moves up to get a good wire - I didn't.
