Rockfax Description
A good route, again low in the grade though the start is quite bold. From a block (low cam) climb the wall using tiny layaways to a good horizontal slot. Continue up a short vertical crack then a wider one, trending right to the top by great climbing. © Rockfax

As per my notes exactly 1 month before - I came back to lead it clean! Very happy. Bit of a wobble with getting gear in the break, otherwise felt nice and clean and solid. Good moves. Definitely worth E1 for an onsight - once you have the beta though it's really not too bad.

Nice. Can't claim onsight as there is only one hard move and when you just watched the leader do this in what is probably the only way possible, it kind of gives it away. Great fun though, definitely a contender for leading next time back in Stanage.

Reaver2k 20/Jun/09 Lead rpt

Got up this despite some jibbering because of gear issues. The crux moves were a bit tricky, I did a little bit of a "throw" for the hold but it didn't feel insecure for some reason but I'm glad I caught it. Turns out I needed the number 3 cam, I'll be sure to take both up with me next time as it required me to downclimb up and down getting gear out and backing myself up etc. Top wasn't too hard but took me a minute to figure out. Lovely route I'll do it more swiftly next time.

V low in the grade, but you have to commit to the hard moves before you find out how good the holds you're going for are. Short but good climbing throughout.

Great climb! Not sure I would figure out the first move without Mike's beta though so thats why I put it with beta rather than onsight! Quite a lunge after that move and walked feet up wall (was told to try and use feet as much as possible to improve) then to get to the next break there was a lovely move! I personally heel hooked it and it felt stable rocking over onto it. Loved it! Do it now! One day I will be confident enough to lead this one!

top is more strenuous than it looks & the gear is bigger than i thought (hence i took small stuff!!).
