Rockfax Description
35m. Starts from the gully down and right from The13th Labour of Hercules. A long sustained pitch up the vague groove in the grey rib which bounds the main Spartacus cave. 35m exactly. Take care when lowering off. © Rockfax

awesome long pitch of climbing, never desperate but continually interesting and just keeps on going! well worth 3 stars.

Pleased to repeat this and do it clean. Still found it sustained, despite making sure I took the various good rests.

Really enjoyed this. Nice and sustained. 70m rope WASN'T long enough - although would have been with better ropework (route zigzags).

No stamina left! 3 months of no climbing is not good preparation for long routes.

Superb long route; had a 'mountain' feel to it. Lots of small pinches and layaways, making for interesting sequence finding. Unlike anything else at Spartacus.

Messed up the crux reach when I opted to pinch a damp tufa and slid off. Bugger.
