Rockfax Description
One of the great challenges of the crag. Most climbers do the route in one pitch, by climbing the first pitch, clipping in, pulling the rope through to reduce rope drag, and then continuing. Start below a large flake corner. Photo this page. 1) 6a. Climb up to a bolt and make a hard move to good holds directly above. Move up and slightly left to clip bolts on Harry the Clamp. Step right, crossing the corner on huge but friable holds and up to a double bolt belay. 2) 6b. Traverse right past two bolts via a hard and blind move to a scoop and a good rest. Pull leftwards out of the scoop to gain a huge pocket. Climb thoughtfully up the headwall to the top. © Rockfax

Pitch 1 o.s. Pitch 2 reversed back from the first bolt as I was unsure of exact line, on one rope and still on belay with gear from first pitch. Need to go back armed with some new knowledge of where to go. **First pitch second bolt mentioned in guide is on Harry the Clamp despite line not showing it going that far left**

Belayed Andy Mitchell on it 10 years beforehand, so can't claim the on-sight!
