Rockfax Description
Climb the centre of the buttress - tough - to jugs and runners. Bail out here if bouldering. Continue up the steep groove and overhang. Avoiding the crux by swinging in from the right is Roundabout, HVS 5b. © Rockfax

No way I could do the lower half, so 'ascended'/aided to retrieve Ralph's gear. Managed to climb rest of route after the first gear!

Took a few go's to work out the start. Not too bad once you know how. Worth a star or two.

Crazy grade, but HVS 6a is about right. It continues at about 5a after the start

For a boulderer I made a right meal of the start! Delicate moves if you cant reach the pocket from the low foothold.

Enjoyed this - technical start took some working out. Moves above through groove and overhang are good as well.

Tried to lead at first, too tricky, then fell off several times at start, tricksy..

placed a cam to the far left (was this off route?), then on the traversed back to the start I slipped and took nice long 'swing'. It took three attempts to find hidden hand crimps. tricky start that gets better & better....

hard move for 5c, the BMC HVS 6a grade seems better. Nice climbing though, another good and quite hard move above the pocket

with Luke

fun. v2/3 problem to start.

stuaart 10/Apr/11 2nd dog

Totally failed the 5c bit at the bottom, so ended up traversing in from the route on the right (perhaps the HVS?).
