Rockfax Description
A small corner leads easily to the mid-height ledge. Step left and move steeply up a shallow groove and wall to a lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climbs up to the left hand side of the pod/niche and makes a scary clip before you hit the crux...
Powerful moves up the flake lead to a scary mini run out on positive holds to gain easier ground above to where the route finally eases out to about 6b+ climbing
Just a little awkward move at the top to gain the chains..... Fantastic positions!

Ticklists: The Orme 7a+'s, North Wales Rock Graded List, North Wales Sport Climbing.

Another dudno classic on the bag and another excellent route! May be a soft touch at 7a+ but it's still got a tricky crux!

Clips in which definitely helped on the bulge. Nearly took a big fall clipping on the bulge - foot slipped but just managed to hold on.

Expected to fall again especially as I got boxed on Axle Attack! Gave it everything and luckily the runouts get easier the higher you get. Why can't I onsight E4 at the moment!?!? Think today will help me click into 'go for it' mode on the onsights of E4s once you know the gear is good just go for it.
