Rockfax Description
A steep and direct line that has some interesting moves. Start at the base of the red stained corner.
1) 5a, 28m. Climb to the overhang and pass it using a crack. Continue up the steep cracks above to a ledge in the gully.
2) 4c, 18m. Move up onto a block and climb the steep wall above it to a ledge. Move left, and then climb to the summit of the pinnacle. Abseil off. © Rockfax

Chose this to warm up on! Fell from the corner crack below the final roof of P1. Basically had my feet all wrong and meant I couldn't get any good jams in the crack. Had a major gear faff as I went back up. Just a little higher there's a huge jug beneath the roof, and the rest of the pitch is easy. Despite falling, this is a cracking bit of climbing, and thoroughly recommended, but given the sustained difficulty this is definitely HVS. P2 is no push over, with some thoughtful moves to move up, and then left on the steeper than expected wall.

Luke led p1 felt a little stiff for the grade but very well protected, I lead p2 and abbed of some dubious tat from the top the route could do with a new mallion

Escaped leftwards at the top of the crack. Nice steep wall on P2.

could have possibly cleaned this if on a top rope but burned out while trying to remove some cams that had walked into their cracks,was so engrossed in the climbing that at one moment when i was right on my limit with my hands slipping on a exposed layback that i forgot i was on a rope and thought i was about to take my last fall ,started to hyperventilate ,had to wedge knees and arms into the crack and calm myself down.

Felt very sustained on second. Nice moves but I felt hard for the grade.

What an absolute gem of a route! Sustained is another word that comes to mind :o)

Sustained after the first roof, best to keep moving. Climbed with Joel Perkin and Tim Taylor. Great route.

Created some kind of weird impossible to free rope jam with a krab and two nuts just below the top moves so blew the onsight. Agree with the other comments, sustained once you are past the first overhang and more like HVS. Lost some skin jamming.

Really pumpy, felt harder than Nothing Much next door

Felt more like a HVS: the layback is nice, but it is very sustained with few places to rest!

DanLear 17/Sep/11 2nd

steep, failed to lead 2nd pitch, ran out of steam at horizontal break

with Dan. 1st pitch pumpy -felt a lot more like HVS 5a but I was unfit at the time!

Trickier as wet!

Led p1: Take care to place good pro before starting the first roof... sustained jamming (or laybacking) is to follow. HVS, 5a in my book! P2 is no pushover either!!

This was a great route to end a great weekend. The first pitch was tough,more like a HVS ,I had a full on pump just before the second overhang,lead it clean and well happy.

took 2 proper lead falls, one from just above the initial roof, the second from just under the second roof. Rested on gear on the second pitch too. Very sustained climbing, but protection is good :)
