Rockfax Description
Nice and varied. Step up and trend out right to pass the roof then climb the bulge leftwards by a powerful pull to access the contrasting slab above. Pad up this paying homage to Three Pebble Slab. © Rockfax

One hard move but once you find the right hold it's easy.

Couldn't find the hold over the bulge so bailed out right. Felt tough at the grade.

Took the line shown in Rockfax at the bottom (this is wrong, it's supposed to traverse immediately above the overhang). Wimped out of the crux due to damp rock and lack of bottle, went up on the right instead (4b ish). Did the top slab properly though :)

lithos 10/Oct/09 2nd

nice varied climbing, bold as brass if you traverse low down then up first slab (beware the damp) Great hard well protected move up the steep wall to bomber gear, then bold (no gear) padding top the top. Nice. Did every section indpedepdent of simons version.

The crux is certainly no pushover. It looks and feels totally unfeasible from below, but once you commit to the move it's all there. Awesome.

HVS 4c/5a. Bottom and top parts both bold adn not a path. Top slab especially is definitely not VS IMO. Similar to klots of HVS 4cs Ive done (and, I dare say it, a few over-graded E1 5a's, such as that thiing at Rivelin by Left Edge, or that well-known thing at Froggatt).

There is pro for the first bit (it may be small however). The crux is a real tester, I did it with a pull up on real slopers then a half mantle with super sloper slap. My 2nd suceeded with a heel hook.

Steve Waters, Mynydd 17/Jun/07 Lead O/S

Easy traverse and moves up to the crux all unprotected. Two bomber small friends in high left and then 10 minutes of head scratching before a strenuous pull to get the feet as high as possible and then slapping for the beginnings of the horizontal break above. Easy slab climbing to finish.
