Rockfax Description
Pumpy climbing up the crack cleaving the wall. Where it thins, go direct, runners and holds keep appearing. Escaping out left before the final section is more like a stiff HVS. From the ledge select a way on/off. © Rockfax

Lessworkmoreclimbing 10/May/17 Lead O/S

Decided I'd better do it as part of my renewed gritstone apprenticeship. Surprised myself by enjoying it and finding it straightforward. Didn't do direct finish though, it feels natural to use the left hand crack after the crux, and then the ledge out left is calling you and it would be artificial and hard to step back right. Cool move to get onto the ledge. First E1 on grit according to my guidebook but it seems to have been downgraded to HVS, oh well, nice route whatever. There was a useable stuck cam at the crux but I would have been able to place it myself if needed.

with Kev
Rob Jarratt 07/May/17 Lead dog

I shouldn't have faffed with all the runners, used multiple rests as a result. I seconded Tony afterwards and reckon next time I should be able to lead it clean.

Found this fairly straightforward and pleasant on second - in complete contrast to the horrid pumpfest experience I had leading this back in 2007. Of course seconding is easier but the main difference is that I've learned to jam! I think the crux is the few moves going up to the fork - once you're on the right hand fork, it's pretty easy. E1 for sure.

Reverting back to type: tried to put in too much gear in the section of tight hands and pumped out without committing to the move :-(

Left hand finish

with Oli Lyon
Si dH 04/Oct/06 Lead dog

One fall, then climbed back up and rested on top piece, then finished leftwards - i.e. wimped out. This is a great little route but its bloody hard work. Perhaps its teh sort of HVS/E1 I'll oly be able to do once Im onsighting E3.

Went much smoother than expected. Placed gear under pressure in upper right crack just after the fork (crux), then continued strenously but without worry. Should certainly be done in full if you`re trying to claim E1
