Rockfax Description
Climb The Corner then step right and climb the slab rightwards to a jug. Pull up to the overhang, traverse right and finish up the short face of the rocking block. A finish on the left is harder. © Rockfax

Couldn't pull on the flake leading. Lloyd led it.

Took a minute to commit to the crux, super well protected but feels very sketchy.

Rich climbed "The Corner" but I 2nded this then decided to led it. The finish over the block via the two pockets is quite straightforward.

Could not find a way to do the finish at 5b; chickened out and walked around the block.

Pintsize 05/Oct/14 2nd

Not entirely sure I did the right line onto the rocking block, started up the arete on the front and then moved left to the pockets. Tough climbing!

didnt realise there was an easy finish on the front arete of top block, much nicer this way, had previously backed off the pocketed overhang, bold but easy moves throughout

Fine, after committing it all comes to hand.

Didn't have a guidebook to check the route so ended up doing a variation. Started on 'The Corner' until the niche. At 'The Niche' used the arete and holds on the face to rock up at the crux. I believe I ended up too high which made the traverse easier.

Declined the sloping mantelshelf at the end shown in the BMC guide. Need to go back and try again.

Weird route really with a weak line. Going right from the niche was much easier than expected but finishing direct over the rocking block past the 2 pockets is not possible at 5b so I traversed right just around the arete to finish which I think is in keeping with the grade of the rest of the route

very nice climbing if not a little green at the start, went much easier than i thought, i must've improved over winter

Did a slight variation - tricky direct start up the arete, foot traverse right along the lip of the overlap on the slab and finish up the right hand side of the rocking block (don't think this one actually rocks though?). The traverse reminded me of Incursion.

starting up the arete, as rockfax suggests, rather than up the slab, as BM&B suggests. Bit of a weak route, one hard move of the floor and another above the gear, the rest is a bit of a disappointment.

Cragrat Rich 21/Nov/06 Lead O/S

Sort of 'unsuspecting' seriousness up the arete to solid & plentiful gear. Central section was pleasant and cruised the block (on it's side rather than front mind you?)
