Rockfax Description
The wall left of Energy Crisis. Powerful climbing with some long reaches and a difficult exit from the top of the first pitch. Protection is just about adequate. Start beneath the left-hand of two wide cracks left of The Ramp.
1) 5b, 28m. Climb thin slabs, past a quartz spike, to reach the overhang - many slings required. Make a hard move right and climb small ledges to gain the belay on The Ramp.
2) 5a, 25m. Finish up The Ramp P2. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Not the normal style of climbing, blobs for holds and not much kit. Good cam just before the insitu tat, which doesnt look that good.

Led Pitch 2 as shared with the ramp, the step right really is blind! Brilliant route, pitch one is not as juggy as it looks from the deck!

Steeper then it looks but steady climbing, with a tricky move near the top

After reversing energy crisis with the intention of stripping both routes on abb! Much harder work than expected involving lots of awkward downclimbing and dangerous traversing.
