Rockfax Description
Raven Wall's smaller twin is also a fine climb, and like many of the lines hereabouts is far steeper and longer than first appearances might suggest. Start 5m right of the large spike as for Raven Wall.
Climb the corner to the overhang and take the crack on its right up to the base of the steep leaning corner. Make tenuous moves up the slabby left wall of the corner to its top and swing right to a ledge. Move left and finish up the black vein above. © Rockfax

A bit complacent about this one, expected it to be bridgey but it was actually very pumpy!

shaunhumphreys 08/Jul Lead G/U

Sacked it off the day before due to incoming rain and taking forever, found it well hard today and very nearly fucked it!! greasy and technical! took over an hour to lead and was trashed by the top!

My first E2 and it felt hard. The crux was seriously exciting and it felt like a slip was very possible...really pleased not to freak out and to get it done!

Picked up the sharp end after Peter repeatedly decided to attempt the crux via the wet 30 deg overhanging side of the corner rather than the gentle slab side.

theotherpetehill 10/Aug/14 2nd rpt

Tried to lead this twice, kept on doing the crux wrong! Then did it clean on 2nd with Ross's beta.

after looking at the in-situ wire i clipped i freaked out a bit, put in a good wire that wasnt 98% rust and had a little rest and figured out the rest of the climb, rested again after reaching the jugs and placing the bomber threaded wire as was getting a bit pumped for the strenuous pull over onto the ledge

lovely route, groove at the top was a bit wet. felt a little soft for the grade but I was rather psyched to do it so maybe it's about right. first cornish E2 on-sight, dead chuffed.
