Rockfax Description
12m. A fine climb, the first to breach the Wave's defences. A right-trending line leads to a worrying stretch for the break. Shuffle right and pull over the centre of the huge thread. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
***2015*** Hold broken on crux, will be a tough move up to the break now.

Tom McCabe 24 Oct, 2015 Lead dnf 4 attempts. Almost got past the broken hold with tiny crimps, but couldn't move off them to the break. Wasn't really up for taking that drop too many times. Fun climbing up to there though! 1 pad

Dave Warburton 8 Jul, 2009 Lead G/U Thought i was going to break my legs reaching for the break. The moves were hard to the break and the reach was nearly too much for me, so much so i gave everything and ended up having to have a cheeky-tightish rope-rest under the roof. Never mind! Quality Quality Route!

Steve Crowe ??, 1997 Lead G/U circa 1997. Bouldered out the start (no mats). Surprised myself getting to the break. Didn't fancy soloing the top so got a rope thrown up, tied a bowline one handed, pulled up a couple of runners then led the finish. Big thanks to everyone who helped out, it was an expensive round in the pub later!
