Quality, a little easier then Witsend I think but not as easy to protect.

Got a bit lost at the bottom but ended up on the route ok. Loads of easy to place gear all the way up and 4 bits plus a no hands rest below the crux roof. Could be E1 5c really.

the crux on whits end direct is harder but this is slightly better

got it second go

beds74 03/May/14 -

Able to rest comfortably under roof, slippy hold for crucial right foot popped! Hung on arms and came down, had a think and tried again to gain the upper slab. Great position fine route. Stiffer than Whit's end direct. E1 gear.

One of the best routes i've done. Apparently you can get a nut above the over lap before moving up. Managed it with a lot of shouting

Enjoyed the lower wall, some thin moves which I just did. Pleased with managing to get up to the roof and getting gear in over the lip, but could not do the move over the roof. Not even after resting on gear or being thrown a top rope by Jim! Thanks for the rescue Jim!

Olli-C 25/May/13 2nd O/S

Found the first couple of slab moves pretty tricky. Steady to the roof then a strenuous use of knees to pass it.

Hidden 25/May/13 2nd O/S
JamieSparkes 06/Oct/12 Lead O/S

An excellent pitch, with the 3 distinct crux sections. I found working out how to get onto the slab from the belay a little perplexing and without a great amount of gear but once established on the slab the pro is excellent - mixture of small/mid size wires and biggish cams in the horizontals. Run out technical crux on the slab and stiff pull round the roof on reasonable holds.

iceicebaby 02/Sep/12 2nd dog

Hard move through the roof, needed a tight rope.

Reminiscent of Silhouette on Cloggy which we did a few weeks ago. Slightly easier crux? Took a while to get a wire in over the lip before committing but it can be done. Such a satisfying pitch.

Slab climbing not my thing. Bugged out onto F Route.

Very hard move over the bulge, no way could I have led this

with Dave

Great climb, but too hard for me. I need to come back at a later date and do it without resting on the ropes.

leon 09/May/12 Lead O/S

Looked like it was going to rain but decided to take a look anyway, expecting to bug out but the climbing was too good to stop.

Harder than Whit's End Direct on the overlap but with better pro, a wee bit trickier lower down too so maybe 1/2 a grade harder overall. A fine pair of routes, just my style, a third sets of nuts 2-4 useful on both.
