Rockfax Description
The classic of the crag, surprisingly steep and pumpy for its time. Climb the left arete to ledges then step right and layback into the finger-crack that splits the centre of the tower. Finish on the left arete. Starting up the right arete is an option at the same grade. © Rockfax

Brilliant. Shamed 'cause I messed up my rope work (no excuses), but a lovely climb.

Got too pumped and had to have a little gear rest on the flake. Wish I'd have spotted the knee bar, might have got the on-sight

clipping the gear Matt had left on the bottom half of the route. Looks like some recent rockfall on the original left hand start - might be better going up the right arete instead now.

I originally led up to the flake but was pumped and thought the layback was going to be mean. Annoyed at myself for not looking for footholds, as it's actually all in balance --- more than at the bottom of the crack! Followed Dave up easily enough... must come back and lead the whole thing some day.

Been looking to do this for a while! Appeared very steep the week before so I chickened out, but tom convinced me it was a good idea and I just needed that bit more encouragement! Deffonately a lovely VS. After some pondering we decided to start the route with the face wall rather than the arete. Stood up, saw there wasn't much gear below the roof and knelt down blindly placing a piece of gear I spied out when I was on my way up! Moved out right, placed more solid gear under the roof, out around the roof, one more piece of gear, then decided to blast for the top of the crack rather than hang around in strenous positions placing some. Relatively easy layback, pumpy but no specifically hard moves. Out left, more gear, then up the crack/arete with ease! Very pleased with myself, becoming solid at VS.
