Rockfax Description
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

Very dirty climb. Spent a long time trying to find the right sequence for the crux (then cheated a fair bit to finish it)

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.
