17m. Enthralling and superb. Beginning to draw an appreciative audience. Start 5 metres right of the base of the ramp. Climb to a flake crack (bolt) then continue directly up on surprising hidden holds past two bolt runners to meet the right end of the overlap. Span up rightwards (bolt) to a large fragile pocket then step back left onto the white wall (bolt) which is climbed with some interest past a further two bolts to reach the big groove above. Finish easily up this (bolt) to a new double ring abseil station at the top of the wall. Originally E4 6a (with two bolts). The line was retro-bolted in 2013.

I got this on my first redpoint attempt, which probably means it's not 6c+. 6c? Good though.

brilliant route. Not that sustained - I managed to climb t quite slowly with lots of shakeouts.

A really really nice line. I think this fully deserves 6c+ or I totally missed the sequence. Harder than both 7a's at brean at least

Led after Alex with draws already in. Had a bit of a wobble coming back left after the cave exit and clipped the next bolt from a really silly place, but otherwise it went smoothly.
Nick Russell - Lead β - 14/Jun/13 with Alex Winter

Soft 6cish?

Seemed hard for/harder than 6c to me, pretty pumpy. Good climb, whatever it is!

Very nice now at F6c - thanks Gordon.
richiebongo - Lead O/S - 26/Apr/13 with Nick Smith

Didn't check the line, out of haste from fear of cold and darkness :P it's a really nice climb and not that hard if you know where your going. Got stuck in the cave not being sure which way to go. probably a soft 6c if done right.
