Rockfax Description
18m. A fine climb, though with an exhausting start. Swim up the narrowing cleft until the ledge on the left can be gained for a breather. Move right and follow the groove to the roof, then move right again and finish up the short wall. © Rockfax

Nice, varied route. Quite mild for E1?

great climbing, if you are the right size and like a bit of a squeeze (easy but hard work udging), followed by some excellent moves higher up. Jim didn't so stripped on abseil

Managed to feel quite secure and ok really... Must be a bleedin nightmare for anyone with a size 30 waist upwards though! Top bit is a romp in comparison.

Alex Thompson 08/Aug/10 Lead O/S

Evil, nasty squirm up chimney (not advised for pie eaters), easy moves up onto slab, some high rockovers to the top. H*ppy failed to follow up, so abbed to remove gear...

I backed off start after a lot of thrashing, but Phil squirmed up it - if you're not too big in the chest you can get in the crack (probably good idea to tie on at the side for the first bit). I had to stay outside and get my legs really high, then led the top section but it was too wet.
