Rockfax Description
A variation on Slocum. Pull over the centre of the low roof then keep right, avoiding Slocum. Mantel onto the large ledge below the top then finish out left with difficulty. Hard for the short. © Rockfax

Graded for giants - not the average climber.

Made a wrong turn at the end of the route. Went right instead of left after failing to finish direct. Only noticed the mistake after consulting the guide book after we got back down. A shame because the finish to the left looks like it would be the best part of the route.

Looks like took the wrong exit, when right at the top, should have gone left.

Fab first move, but top out is absolutely terrible. Not sure how this managed to get a 5a grade unless the first ascentionist was 6ft 5"!

The top was not easy for the short... assuming I went the right way. Slopey and awkward and felt more like 5b/c

Has anyone done the proper left hand finish? It is proper desperate I went right up the crack then traversed left thats bout HVS. The left finish is sumwhere 5C mayb even 6A stupid.

Great top move, but guide description confused on final moves. First HVS in two years!
