Rockfax Description
A devious classic with a bold - but easy - finish. The frustrating (and chipped) initial slab can be ascended in several places at 5a/b. From the ledge, climb through the bulge just to the right of the arete, to another ledge. Step down (low runners) and traverse across the slab to reach its right arete. Follow the right side of this to the top; bold but mild. © Rockfax

Really good slab climb. No real difficulties just trust the gritstone friction. got the token nut before the traverse. A pretty mild route for a VS 5a lovely though.

A delightful climb. Didn't find the initial slab too tricky but was very enjoyable, i stuck to the left hand side but didn't use the arette. Steady gritstone friction climbing. Loads of jugs at the buldge and some gear, thoughtful move over the bulge. Some gear in the crack on the left then a step down to the lower break which was a little exciting. One cam in the left of the break and that was my ladt gear till the top. The traverse was steady as was the climbing above with only one technical move near the beginning.

very hard move to gain the first pocket took me 3 attempts to leave the ground :/ but once you get the first hold its very pleasant climbing. but very exposed once you start the traverse. I had no gear from the start of the trav to the finish good job its easy climbing. could of maybe got a size 2 in the pocket after the trav but I found that it wasn't needed as I was just gunning for the top. nice climb!

Turns out the trick to the lakes did my head the world of good! Didn't panic at all despite being very poorly protected. Bouldered the start first, did it first time though, then did it again on lead, gear under the slab, up left on good holds, over a small bulge and up to the top ledge, one more piece of protection. Was a little uncertain how high to go on the slabs. I ended up doing it with hands in the top break and feet in the lower one. Worked out fine and was 4a pretty much max. Found another piece of protection (double ropes help) at my feet just before starting the final arete which Dad pointed out. Top arete is nice and easy aswell. At the top Dad stepped off left and I chose to do the short crack just to the right which is a nice finish. 4a apart from the beginning, probably HS 5a but I guess you can't complain with VS as its not well protected at all and would probably deck from the end of the traverse, or atleast be very close!

Absolutely awesome route. I had lots of beta from Swingy around gear placements. The opening moves took a bit of unlocking, but once I was at the first break, the climb transformed into a thoroughly enjoyable little expedition.

Bouldered around the bottom bit previously, so it was a pretty quick start. Went up the left side, traversed to the right arete and went up. Would like to go up the middle next time...

Traversed in from the right having completely failed on the easiest direct start according to the guidebook. Makes it a more balanced route though, at around VS 4b/c.
