Rockfax Description
A much-attempted climb that features a tough series of moves to leave the belay ledge at the start of the second pitch. Start below a steep, thin corner-crack above a rock-pool.
1) 4a, 13m. Move up to the steep corner-crack and climb it until easier moves up less steep cracks gain a large ledge and belay.
2) 4b, 9m. Make some bouldery moves up just left of the overhang to a ledge above it. Finish up cracks heading left to the top of the buttress. © Rockfax

Hard not to love this kind of climb. Very steep in places, a couple of nice moves, loads of satisfying holds and pro. Second left one piece in near the bottom, so I went down it as well. Second pitch has one neat move to the ledge, but isn't much more after that.

rated HS in rockfax. very enjoyable and also scary climb. 1st pitch had a very nice overhanging section that is littered with jugs and is very enjoyable. 2nd pitch is scary and exposed but awesome. quite a puzzle just to get off the ground, ended up going right up to t ledge about head height. got some marginal pro on the crack at head height. and then tackled the steeply overhanging section up and left, that was propper scary stuff, strenuous and pumpy with Pro quite a distance away but pulled though the crux. bit of a scramble finish from there up.

Good fun, challenging moves at the grade! P1 has some steep (overhanging?) awkward moves, but on big holds. The first move on the second pitch is hard for 4b IMO, Lucy peeled off here. Overall great fun with some powerful moves. Oh, and harder than Civvy route.

Blisco 25/May/08 AltLd O/S

Led p2, which was a bit of a one-move wonder, but the climb as a whole was very pleasant.

Nice Route. Took two attempts on the overhanging flakes in the corner. Also went right too early so missed the 'interesting' move. Great route though, enjoyed the overhanging flakes lots!

Lead first pitch up the corner. Gaining the ramp on second pitch is v tricky. Climbed the last pitch direct rather than taking the easy finish.

Letterbox moves are the crux but well protected if a bit off balance

Lead P1 - Offroute on P2 after the 'box' which made it considerably harder.
