Rockfax Description
The crack and chimney line on the right of the high, sloping ledge is a challenging but worthwhile pitch. Start on the high sloping ledge below the line. Good low nut on the left for a belay.
Climb up and right into the line and move up to below where the the crack widens and becomes rounded. Make some awkward moves to get started on the rounded section of the chimney before things ease towards the top. © Rockfax

'Character building' Fairly awkward and thrutchy, rock fairly loose and some bits looked a bit fallen down. Crag also had a fairly 'interesting' walk in (big drops between boulders).

This seemed high in the grade but that was probably because the rock was a bit crumbly

Easy lead, didn't need much gear. Good warm up.

Definitely easier than severe, diff or easy vdiff really - zero chimneying skills required. It's not runout either if you look around and like climbing up a staircase in the chimney. Not sure about the star either, but an okay route nonetheless.

Chimney is a bit bold for severe but its great climbing.

as Rowland Edwards book 'Cornish Rock' says "they don't teach you this on climbing walls" it requires a range of unique moves to climb this route .Great fun ,if a bit painful as i had to jamb my hands against the side to stop a slip turning into a fall

A pretty tricky second half into the chimney and getting off the route.

Bad route sketch in new rockfax!! Shows start up VS which has nearly no gear. Start to right, NOT up VS!! Pretty awkward for 4a but plenty of runners.

Out climbing with the Jones' (we did start a little to the left and traversed a little into the chimney if we are going to be fussy about routes)
