Warrior** 6c

Rockfax Description
A sport route with a traditional feel about it. Start just below a thin crack that becomes a groove higher up.
Move up and devise a method of attaining the ledge up on the left. Mantle onto the ledge and take the wall and steepening grooves above past a wobbly hold to a lower-off. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
A very worthwhile climb following the line of bolts in the steep groove line on the far left of the lower fortress wall. Start below an obvious borehole scar leading to a ledge. A balancey start and stiff pull lead to the ledge and the steep groove which is followed tothe chain. Excellent climbing in great positions!

Perhaps it's the hangover talking but found this a bit disappointing. Clipsticked second bolt on lead from hands on the ledge before doing the mantel which was an interesting manoeuvre. Call me weird but I don't really see the point in what feels like a deliberately badly bolted sport route to give it a "trad feel". Likewise the second to last bolt placed so you can't quite clip it off the ledge. Perhaps to make the climbing feel more exciting than it actually is?...

Climbed this with mum belaying. Took a few rests, but probably could have got the onsight if I were a bit stronger. Soft for the grade.

Jackislav - Lead O/S - 07/Jun/15

First try was pretty awfully, although I got to the top. Then we went and worked on Double Agent before returning. Second go went really well, took just one rest on the final layback move - took too long thinking about it and got pumped before I committed to the move. Another one to work on.

Superb route definite 3 stars, in keeping with the routes to the left, techy moves with absolutely no pump involved. Overgraded, only around 6b easily.

Compared to mayday this route is a straightforward 6c, great climbing, requiring good footwork.

Climbed it twice. The first stepping in from the right off "friend or foe" and second delicately laybacking the borehole itself to avoid the sopping wet mantle. Probably wise to wait for a few more dry days if you dont like it wet :o)

Damp and dark is not the way to climb this route! Had to back off as I couldn't see where to put my feet. Definitely will return as it has some great moves.
