Rockfax Description
An intimidating line which gains the hanging corner in the centre of the cliff. Start on the huge boulder that rests against the base of the right-hand side of the crag.
Climb up the quartz-flecked wall to a small overlap, and just beyond a left-trending groove line. Move left to steep rock below the corner. Climb through the steep rock just left of the corner then move into the corner and climb it to the top. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Another excellent long Kenidjack route taking a fairly direct line up to the right corner of the main face. Start on the huge boulder and trend rightwards to pull over the end of the narrow overhang at around 8m. Continue up the groove system and than a slab above until a pull over the overhang can be made near its left hand side. Step rightwards into the corner and ascend that to the top by some absorbing moves.

Good, varied route. A bit run out for a few metres in the corner. With Viktor from Sweden on the BMC international meet. Also seconded Viktor up Saxon and Rock Dancer - also good routes. The crag was fairly wet when we turned up but soon mostly dried out. It stayed dry while people at Bosigran got a thorough soaking! However it was dry over there by the time we got on Desolation Row at 5pm.

My first E1! Felt harder than Rock Dancer, and less gear further up. Took me quite a while to get up it, but it was worth it. Well chuffed. Really nice hard climbing (for me) too.
