Rockfax Description
A great classic featuring fine climbing and good protection. At the lowest toe of the pinnacle, climb a wide crack (often damp) to ledges then the wall trending left via a series of finger-cracks. Finish up the rickety flake with care. © Rockfax

Classic end to the day. Had me at moments going - what on earth do i do now!?!? but as soon as worked the move out it felt alot more natural - just was finding it. Flake sounded hollow as but knew/had seen 5 people go up it at least that day so thought it's fine - just don't want to be the person the day it goes...

Lovely route. Plenty of rests and jugs in between any tricky stuff. One or two moves that are slightly balancey and strenuous, but nothing too tricky. Would be good to lead next time. The hollow flake is scary but still seems ok after all this time, and was fine for both of us to pull on on our way up.

Felt exposed and was not really prepared for the early crux, but turned out to be a satisfying climb to finish. Very iconic and fun abseilling off the top.

Climbed the first few moves on Charley's gear after he came off but did the crux clean and led the rest. Awesome climb. Abbed off in the rain and dark and got the rope stuck!!! Charley's Xmas rope! :-(

Almost got Andy's rope stuck who did it before me and offered his already set up abseil rope as I had to ab for the gear as it was un seconded. To do this I had to wrap the rope round under the feature next to the chain to be able to abseil down the same line of the gear. Good as ever and worth the hassle.

Great fun, good protection all the way as well though on the first bit above the ledge I got two nuts in - one of which was a bit poor. Took a bit of courage moving out left, but once I got up there found there was nothing to worry about. Slightly strenuous placing the gear, but bomber all the way. Not sure what this "hidden finger crack" business is though - I just used the ones I could see! The view of Rivelin valley in the soft Autumn afternoon sunlight was a fine reward.

Que the rain, luckily it didn't get too bad, it went pretty easily, although I seemed to mess up the bomber nut placement a little as I could see it should be good. Fantastic position once sat on the top! A couple followed us to join us on the top.
