The Rasp Direct*** E3 6a
12m. 12m. A sharp finger crack and tough layback lead rapidly to the crux of the regular route and then its poor rest in the niche. Once recovered, pull straight over the roof to a belly-flop landing of the highest calibre. Action packed and high in the grade. © ROCKFAX

Had gear in on The Rasp itself but had to place the gear on the crux, don't think it helped much because its so juggy. I DID A FINGER CRACK!

Bottled top moves so not E4. 25 degrees is too hot for grit!

Adam Long - Lead O/S - 24/Apr/10 with Neil 'Nige' Kershaw

Boy - Sep/09 with Fiona Fullwood

Awesome, as good as the original, thought start was pretty hard and made a bit of a pigs ear of it. Top out proved taxing too, but did it more gracefully than the guide suggests.

dan gibson - Lead O/S - 06/Jun/08

stupidly failed on the intitial crack having not planned a sequence and attempting retreat. ripped a 'what looked good' wire and decked! sore arse now. Lucky I didn't hit my head on the boulders. Eddie led it then i did it on his gear - steady enough when i'd found a decent sequence....again, brilliant route.
