Rockfax Description
A route with a good lower section but then it fizzles out. Climb the wall via couple of long reaches (big cam to the left) to easier terrain. As the wall gets ever-narrower make an escape. © Rockfax

Mark Duncan 11/Nov/17 Lead O/S

Fairly straight forward. Gear was good on the crux but not so good on the easier bit, but was fine.

Good route thought it was soft for E2 you wouldn't want to fluff the move above the overhang though

Was doing okay until I moved up on the crux onto slopers and just couldn't hold them...took a couple of goes to get the move.

Pretty straightforward moves lead to a shit break, above the small roof. Though moving up on top of the roof was the crux. Would be just about protected from a groundfall by bomber low gear in the pocket. Top is still spicy enough, depending on how much one stays on the face, but with better gear.

Don't know I even bothered trying this. Was still ruined from bloody limestone from the day before and just didn't feel ready to commit to anything hard.

Good route. Slopy breaks and tricky flared friend placements after technical slab and overhang. deck potential

This has Really good moves but not much of a line. I found it pretty tough for the grade but perhaps I missed something as the consensus seems to be that it's soft.

Slipped off an early move, lowered and climbed clean. Felt very stiff and glad to have been on the blunt end.

Lost track of the amount of times that I asked "would I deck from here?". Scarier and harder than Brown's Eliminate. Really enjoyed this. Classic grit knee trembler.
