Straight forward enough climbing, however, I placed a bomber wire six in the obvious placement at bottom of the flake, leant back on flake while clipping and wire fell out the bottom! Stuffed a cam in! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED Ha ha ha.

A lot easier if you don't hang about! A bit lacking in gear for a VS 5a (supposed to be safe).

I've been climbing at Corby for nearly 15 years and I've always thought this climb feels more like an E1! Crux is really high off the ground and your fist bit of gear is above it and behind a flake that moves. I've lead many other E1's that are less dangerous.

Nice route. There is gear but crux is very close to ground so used bouldering mat instead.

What a cracking climb! Starts off fun and reassuring, then a bold, head-game move up and over the (not dramatically) wobbly flake and the route's in the bag. Get to the top and fight the urge to repeat there and then!

Climbed without placing gears the same as Duncan. Eases considerably once you're standing on the flake.

The flake felt unpleasantly hollow. Nice moves, but not a climb I'd care to repeat.

Wish I'd brought some gear up - there was a beautiful sling thread near the top! Technically very easy, presume the HVS is just for the lack of protection on the crux.
jonny taylor - Solo O/S - 29/Jun/08

Nice varied climb, powerful roof into delicate slab - more like VS?
