Rockfax Description
A bold and exciting climb on superb holds that requires a confident approach. Start at the toe of a ramp below the steep pocketed wall.
Climb up the ramp for a few metres and then swing up onto the wall on a good pocket and use the crack on the left, close to the arete, to move up to more good holds at mid-height. Finish steeply up the central crack-line on yet more good holds. © Rockfax

Climbed with Steph. Fun climbing, I would say its HVS due to the lack of good gear for most of it. Though you can get a fair sling if you traverse out right a little around the middle and a good small nut a little higher than that.

Excellent. Thought there was enough gear, especially considering it was so juggy.

Steep, but very positive holds. Well spaced gear, but often questionable. Very nice climbing overall, definitely worthy of a couple of a couple of stars.

Gear is pretty shocking - 2 micro wires and 2 cams...in holes! Did find a thread half way up. Good last climb of the day.

Nice end of the day route, at least on the second. Hard to place gear on!

Great route felt very HVS after 4 days climbing. 4c Is fair but gear is hard to place and falling form the top would see u take a massive lob!!

really good route to finish the day. would make a great solo, holds are all mega. i'd say HVS as the gear is sparse. can't see there being a better route at the crag.

Matt Smith 25/Mar/12 Lead O/S

Great climb, really positive holds but gear is awkward to place and runout, especially at top hence why HVS is probably right.
