The Great Scoop** VS 5a
[The Great Scoop, after the crux., 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
18m. Well worth calling in for if you are passing this way. Traverse the slab to its apex and make an awkward move to access the ledge and a possible stance. Move right for a nicely exposed finish. Photo on page 39. © ROCKFAX

Becks87 - 2nd O/S - 27/Sep/15 with Adam L

Awesome route, feet slipped off the slabby traverse a couple of times but held on and avoided certain shin injuries. Loved the move to access the ledge. Used a really good right knee bar before it to rest and place gear. Top section was tricky to place protection and almost pushed through without. Dubious wall nut placement in some loose rock helped psychologically. Definitely worth the stars and the walk up just for this alone.

Good route. May have pulled a hold off today as it crumbled in my hand.

Im a short arse so i couldnt make the reach and didnt trust my feet on the dam smooth grit to smeer on the akard corner, so wimped out but good climb though!
Tiddles09 - Lead dnf - 22/Aug/10 with Alex Charlesworth

Took a surpise fall just before the awkward corner. Came back down and tried again and did it. The top section felt exposed but the holds are there!

A climb of two halves, the lower section is novel before a reach around and up to the ledge. The top section is steep but the holds are better than they appear to be.

Getting better at smears slowly. Think the bottom half would have been less scary on the lead tbh!

Crux went smoothly despite being "serenaded" by Hadyn on an abandoned guitar... Top wall felt more intimidating. Kay tested the new club rope's impact force a few times.
