Rockfax Description
22m. A devious classic with a weird finish. Pull rightwards onto the wall from a recess then climb cracks to a small but good ledge below the upper face (belay recommended here). Pull up to the break then move left to the arete. Move up and left again then crawl through the horizontal slot to an exposed exit on the front face. Told you it was weird. © Rockfax

Very soft at the grade? Hard moves above gear, I'd put it at a very solid HVS. Brilliant climb whatever the grade, with a fantastic and exposed finish (that you definitely don't want to crawl into; stay outside and enjoy the exposure)

Felt hard to me, I'm amazed to see others think it soft for the grade. Brilliant lead

Great climb. Do not under estimate the lower part off the climb. No good for short people after the ledge.

Nice route, considered hand traversing the break but decided to get stuck in instead for the full experience!

First HVS. Great fun and just scary enough. Spent a minute or two on the "man up" ledge. "This is where you look to the left, then the right and then decide to man up" - Haydn. "Go on, treat yourself to a quickdraw" - Haydn.

How do you reach the break from the ledge? We used combined tactics.
