Rockfax Description
The centre of the face has a big rattling flake, a hand-placed peg runner and hard moves on rounded breaks. It is slightly escapable and also easier for the tall. © Rockfax

LakesWinter 21/Nov Lead RP

Pre placed gear, top roped a few times, got scared, cracked on.

Cake 21/Nov -

Excellent moves throughout. Lots of 5c, maybe one 6a move for a tall person. Flashed it on TR, then practiced about 5 times. All gear pre-placed and the good cam had a naughty extension.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 28/May Solo RP

Did it on a top-rope beforehand, quite glad I did too. Despite the fact it's easy those flakes are a long way below AND - most importantly - highly suspect. If you did come off I'd imagine that they'd be coming with you too! Easier for the tall.

clean first go. good gear can be arranged. don't fancy the hand placed peg much but sideways nuts to the left seam to protect the lower section well, 1/2 cam top brake

dr_botnik 03/Feb/14 TR O/S

Had to slap for the good hold, could feel the inertia of my body falling off before I realised I'd latched it! great moves, bit too bold for the lead today though, especially with how rattely that flake sounded

Felt more like 6a. Would still be a scary scary lead though...

Bit greasy and blustery - took a long time to commit. Top crux is worrying as you really aren't going to get away with coming off...

Weasled right of the first crux.

jugglingeek 26/May/08 TR dog

Some dynamic moves and some disgracefully sloping holds. Way too hard for me really but I did make it all the way to the top with just two falls.

Top class route. Very nervous even with the success yesterday

martroberts 02/Jan/00 TR O/S

Only climbed E2 before trying this on toprope but got it first time. Did it another 5 times without falling and came back the day after to lead with Dad
