Rockfax Description
Start on the left wall of the cleft, at some polished footholds. Make delicate moves to better holds, swing left along the break to pass the arete, and climb the wide crack on the left. © Rockfax

SuperLee1985 27/Aug/17 Lead O/S

Nice route. Crux was after leaving the ground with some unprotected delicate and stretchy moves right to gain some decent holds and the break. I thought I'd end up going up before the corner but I traversed a bit to place gear and then ended up on a decent ledge. Traversing round the corner and beyond was exciting with good hand and poor feet and the last gear becoming quite far away. Eventually gained good feet and pulled into the crack and slung a chock. Not too bad above apart from rope drag. Hard to avoid bridging a foot on the back wall to rest.

Followed Lee up a fantastic route. Would've bailed after the 5b move though if on lead

I went to high and ended up following the roof and making it harder for myself in the middle. My alternative was very delicate with some hidden under clings but good fun.

Tricky moves to start & up to arete. Dirty rock on left wall (not a well travelled route I suspect). Done after Ralph decided that 5.9 Finish needed a little bit more than he had in reserve!

Tried to climb 5.9 finish but couldn't get over the roof. Escaped up this instead.

Phil's first lead - looked a little scary. Enjoyed seconding, varied technical climbing. One slip on the slab invloved lsight grazing to left arm!

Steven Andrews 30/May/10 Lead O/S

Bloody hell this was a bit of a technichal climb! Nice moves up the slab, and then a rather tricky traverse.

Steve went up first so I had an idea and he guided me through (literally) the crack / gap at the top with a wiggle to top out. Very satisfying climb, especially with (for me) an awkward top out.
