Blind Fury >>
Steep and varied climbing with good protection. Start at the base of a clean, narrow corner. 26m. Climb the narrow corner to the overhang and layback steeply up rightwards to good holds. Follow a finger-crack left to its end and step onto a ledge on the right. Move up and left to the bottom of a final corner that leads to the top. © ROCKFAX

Dave attempted to lead but backed off at the crux, and so I took over. I seconded it once 2(?) years ago.

Good climb with a nice technical sequence at the crux; lots of lichen and in need of some traffic.

A great route, 3 stars surely. Tough well-protected crux but the rest is all good too and quite sustained 4a/b.
Simon Caldwell - 2nd O/S - 01/Sep/11 with Carmen

Just after some rain, very wet start. A hard 4c move in the middle, but very well protected. 3 Stars, Better than Sensible Shoes!

Brilliant climbing on improbable holds. The crux felt more like 5a, but it's fair at VS.

Fantastic. Felt like benchmark VS 5a to me.
