Patience** E3 5c

Rockfax Description
A good route that rises to a climax in its upper corner. Start at a wide chimney at the right-hand end of the ledge.
Climb the chimney and then move out onto its left wall. Work up leftwards to join the right-trending crack-line. Climb the crack-line to its end below a steep groove. Make some hard moves to enter and move up the groove. Easier ground above leads to the top. © ROCKFAX

Didn't have the patience to wait for it to stop raining... Didn't matter at all, the friction is so good!
AlexD - Lead O/S - 01/Aug/15 with Ed

Cool moves above good gear with a slightly longer than expected run out to the top.

Slid off on the final (yes final) move! Oh well... Great lead by Nick on a technical route with some sustained moves through the top groove.
Dilwat - 2nd dog - 06/Jun/15 with Nick Donohue

A good climb; sustained though not strenuous at the crux (but relying on technical bridging). Well protected. :)
nickdonohue - Lead - 06/Jun/15 with Ian Riddell

Felt very much harder this time. Definitely E3 despite what the new definitive says.

Finally got up something that wasn't wet or sketchy or terrifying!

A nice route to finish the weekend on. Fun chimney section with optional back and footing followed by a great VS/HVS section up the C shaped flake before the 5c moves kick in. Pretty easy for the grade (a good grade easier than Raven Wall), I'd say hard E2 if you don't mind being a bit above gear (which is good). Good crux section which carries on longer than you expect but is pretty steady with lots of bridging.

Fell on the crux numerous times due to the pump.
