Rockfax Description
Absorbing balancy climbing up the left arete of the buttress with a poor landing leads to a good horizontal break and runners. An immense reach is all that remains, or if over-reached, head left. © Rockfax

Got the gear in the slot but then realised that it was far too hot (fat evening sun) to be worth bothering with, so down-climbed. Looks great though.

Downclimbed from the crux a few weeks ago as I didnt have a small cam. Still had to do a fair bit of up'n'downing today as it was greasy in the heat. Last move was a bit of a shock too. Good route.

Couldn't get any gear in the tiny slot at the start so essentially a solo, got a friend in the break higher up.

Felt too committing above a nasty landing. Followed Matt up and was glad I hadn't lead it.

Pretty committing crux. Not sure I'd have had the reach to reverse it.

Warmup for Nosferatu. Not bad though. Should go back and lead

Excellent climbing, well worth a couple of stars. Attempted O/S lead but was being a wimp committing to the crux so top-roped it once and then led with head torch as it was getting dark. Slightly disappointed I top roped it as it wasn't that hard in the end and also I think could have got the O/S on a different night if I'd waited but still happy to have done this as it is a little gem.
