Rockfax Description
A popular and rewarding climb that consists of two totally contrasting pitches; the first technical and the second super steep. Start on a high flat ledge left of Black Slab.
1) 4c, 24m. Pull onto the slab. Climb rightwards to its edge and move up to where it meets the steep wall above. Make technical moves up and right to a black vein and follow this more easily, moving right after 5m, to a belay below the overhanging corner at the right-hand end of the large overhang.
2) 5a, 8m. Climb the overhanging corner, perplexing but well-protected, and pull over the lip on massive holds to easier ground. A wild pitch. © Rockfax

I led the first pitch and then we had to bail as it chucked it down. We got absolutely drenched getting back to the bags. I think I may have strayed on to Ochre Slab 1.5 as the way I did it was definitely harder than 4c.

I took pitch one, leaving Stuart with the interesting roof problem. Made it way more difficult for myself on second by climbing right from the back of the groove.

Typical first time back at bosi and ended being talked into a HVS. . I lead the first pitch delicate moving along to the vein then delicate and strenuous couple of feet to easier ground though no protection for the rest on the vein except one spike on the right had the shakes by the time I got to the belay.... bailed on second pitch for a bother day as both shattered..... Great adventure as always at bosi

lead the first pitch, very good protection on the twin crags then when following the black vein it is totally bold but you move slightly left to put some protection without leaving the vein to set up the belay point below the big overhang. the second pitch is a proper 5a, easy if you are tall, a bit of a struggle for me being short as was not able to reach the good holds once you in the corner, but and you move up the wholes a massive and you and bridge to get the better ones at the top

Awesome climb, deserves all the stars. Made the traverse harder than it needed to be by missing a foot ledge, but that made it more satisfying. Top overhang pitch took at least 3 hours to lead, probably due to inexperience on Cornish granite (2nd route), but very satisfying when I finally got it.

Couldn't find the holds to move towards black stuff on the 1st pitch, came down and Jana led the first pitch instead. Perversely I led the 2nd and found it easier than the 1st.

Had to miss the 2nd pitch out, far too daunting for my 2nd to lead through and convinced me not to try

Led p1, couldn't do p2 - climbed adjacent wall instead.

P2 looks imposing but goes ok - ropework difficult though. Impossible to hear each other if there's any wind. Second escaped up the side.
