25m. Easiest route on the crag. Open face climbing with a few small bulges. Crimpy cruxes.

Full value for 7b. Nice crimpy crux.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 08/Apr Lead β

A great route, but at the top of its grade. All of the three cruxes are fluffable, particularly when pumped, although thankfully there's time to rest in between.

Day 5 - Doffs hat to the guys that climbed this when it was basically a trad route. Tough session, second red point (of the day) saw me at a new high point above the B3/4 crux expecting to cruise to victory. However, I found myself so pumped and in such a poor state that my brain melted. All beta dribbled out of my ear and I was lost to gravity. The very hopelessness of the third attempt relieved the redpoint stress and I got on well enough to wobble myself to the chains. Hard work for 7b. Let's all just agree it's actually 7b+. :)

First RP after a TR burn for warm up. Managed to work out a new sequence for the final jug at the chain without having to dyno during the TR burn.

Koon 21/Aug/16 Lead rpt

Extra burn for training after the first RP.

Day 4 - Promising top rope warm-up links but flopped on the redpoint attempts. Lots of long falls onto bolt 3.

Koon 14/Aug/16 TR dog

Managed to link from ground to good rest...but found the top section to the chain quite hard. Iffy dyno to the chain probably not a goer.

Day 3 - back to beta square one. Have established there are ducks. Putting them in a row still proving difficult.

The intention was to try to onsight Railway Children however I took the easy option at the niche. UE was all chalked up and easy to read while RC wasn't. Climbed one bolt more on RC and I was unsure what holds to use so reversed this section back to the niche and finished up UE. Uncertain emotions indeed.

What a stunning route. And an awesome location. Keen to get stuck into the other routes now. A tad hard for 7b? Felt much easier this time round after spending a bit of time in Yorkshire ;)

Climbed through first crux then fell off as I couldn't feel my hands. Lower down to below first crux then went from there to top. Hopefully next next...

Wired the first crux...hopefully can remember all the new beta from today...best burn popped off just before clipping at the end of second crux...close no cigar. Conceding that ground up ethics aren't always best for learning moves...

2nd time on it, still no tick. Seriously need to do a bit of endurance work before getting back on it!

catt 26/Aug/12 Lead dog

Brilliant route, very psyched for it. 3 working goes and then a speculative redpoint, made it to the second crux, better than expected, then suffered terminal power/energy/fitness fail combined with an acute case of Midge.

retro onsight climbed to 4th or 5th bolt in the rain 8 years ago.

ANC 26/Jun/12 Lead dog

Put in the clips on lead OS fail. All moves squared away. Two red point attempts succumbed to poor feet on the first crux and a lack of route knowledge. Great route given recent form I’d say this was a tough 7b!

first time on it- putting in clips up to point where route splits into railway children for jules who was working on that one. Can't do the moves at the 2 cruxes yet.

Worked it twice then went for the redpoint, really surprised myself by getting through both cruxes and getting to the rest. Had only worked the finish once and came off the last crimp due to power failure!
