12m. Layback the right arete to runners under the overhang then move round the arete and access the thin crack; climb this with difficulty. Excellent and with decent gear, after the start. © Rockfax

Pretty grubby, good route

Very dirty climb. Spent a long time trying to find the right sequence for the crux (then cheated a fair bit to finish it)
|Nick Sillem||??/2013||Lead RP|
felt a lot easier this time, just a little pumpy
awesome lead by oli... moves felt comfy on toprope
fell below the crux first time, lowered down and climbed it clean but without pulling the rope so still requires a return visit for the full lead. although there appears to be multiple sequences through both lower and upper cruxes I reckon its still feels a little harder than 5c
great moves all the way up. very commiting start and a bit of 'exitment' near top means the clean lead is saved for another day...
clean with 1 rest on the upper face - start slab/arete is techincal crux, top crack/wall on rhs is stamina crux :(

Quite dirty. Should've cleaned it first. Typical Simonside dirt. Very tricky slopers near the top. Will be back to clean the pitch.
Both delicate and strenuous climbing. Chicken heads and ironstone inclusions for a high-stepping rock-over on the top wall. Great route.
