Rockfax Description
The wall just left of the chimney has good moves (long reaches) though the option of rightward escape rather spoils the effect. © Rockfax

beautiful moves, long reach comes in handy!

Reachie in places but doesn't feel like an E2 because if you got in to a tricky spot you could just climb into the chimney.

Sweet climb, felt pretty easy for the grade.

A wet and windy day! Raining when I went up, last climb of the day. Did not do route properly, used chimney slightly.

Escaped first go. Found better sequence second time.

E1? Pretty steady. Good moves, just ignore the escapibility.

Where was the 6a move? It seemed quite straightforward if a little bold. A nice toe cam was key in going between two of the breaks

Great route - got to the crux solo, noted the bomber gear and quickly retreated to return with a rope. The top out might catch a few out, so make sure you have a good rest before trying it!

Nice climbing with a wicked top-out.
