Rockfax Description
A great pitch that passes the small round hole high on the right-hand side of the face. Start 5m left of the right arete of the slabby wall. High in the grade.
Climb up slightly right towards the arete and then move up to a crack that leads to the hole. From the hole a leftwards-trending line has a couple of small nut placements that protect the technical moves to the top. © Rockfax

My second E1 lead. Greasy and insecure today after rain last night. Nice route with the hardest moves at the top :-)

Thunder and lightning during the crux sequence right overhead, and a rain shower once I got to the pocket. A 15/20 minute wait for it to stop and dry out.

Ran it out a bit far (1piece at 10ft then nothing until the crack beneath the pocket) felt hard as a result.

Scary top section. Gear in the hole was worse than I was expecting, and I would have down-climbed to rest in the hole after I set off, but was completely unable.

Great climbing as most other routes on this slab. Hard section is a few moves past the hole where you have to rock over on little more than a vague bulge in the slab. Trust your shoes will stick!!

Followed Dave up it for a warm up - Very greasy and weeping/wet in places. Much harder than when i lead it! Needs a long period of dry weather to come into condition
