Rockfax Description
The middle finger-crack leads to the cave - worthwhile at solid HVS 5b. A tricky traverse left and technical wall gain a ledge on the arete. Trend rightwards more easily to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Very pleasant climbing. You can get a Friend 2.5 at foot level in the cave at the top of the Oxford Street to back-up the very poor belay. Small wires useful for the top wall. A lovely outing, low in the grade.

βeta: the belay is a bit worse than 'indifferent', better to clip it with an 8ft sling and do the route as one pitch.

Shouldn't affect the route too much as there is an alternative hold a little higher that is within almost as easy reach (and I'm on the short side). Thought it best to get rid of it.

foobar123 12 May, 2018 Lead O/S My first E2 and definitely didn't disappoint! The initial crack is damn hard for HVS (low E1?) then you get a nice break and good gear in the cave. Moving into the finger crack isn't too hard but takes some commitment, so I tried it out once then came back for another rest before going for it. Crack is pretty tenuous to start, but keep going and eventually there's a good hold to shake out / place gear on. Got a rare trad-toe-hook on the arete to help pulling over onto the ledge!

David Kay 26 Aug, 2015 Lead O/S The lower crack is fairly stiff at HVS 5b. Got some good gear in at the left end of the cave before teetering out into the unknown. Got half way through the crux sequence and decided I didn't want to go much further without placing some gear. I faffed around for ages on the poor finger locks placing a nut and getting quite pumped in the process. I then instantly regretted this when I made one more move up into a much better balanced position. Realising how pumped I was I spent a while here shaking out on the half rest before making one more easy move to the ledge and hands off rest. The climbing was great but an epic faff for me today.

Misha 2 May, 2015 Lead O/S Challenging with cold hands! Sheltered from the wind but below 10 degrees so had to keep trying to warm the fingers up on the HVS section. That has two hard bits and seemed pretty hard for HVS, didn't climb it very well, limited finger functionality is my excuse! According to the guide book, I did it to the cave in 2007 but couldn't remember anything about it. Great exposed section going out of the cave, short but exciting and packs some good moves in. I dropped down to foot traverse a little below the level of the cave, then moved up into the thin finger crack. Struggled to fiddle in a couple of micros from a tricky position then made a fairly straightforward move up and got a good hold, typical! Andrew seconded in the drizzle and it got worse after that so we ran away to Chee Dale.

With some handy beta from Michael I eventually made a reasonable attempt and barn-doored after getting the other side of the diagonal crack. I was very pleased that I managed it relatively smoothly the second try. Did not finish up the arete.

LoopyLou 25 Jul, 2009 Lead O/S Brilliant route. Starting crack has easy to read but pumpy moves up to the cave. Nice rest. The traverse out left and up the finger crack is obvious but fingery asnd committing - not exactly a hand rail! Reward is an easy romp to finish. A good route to try if you are pushing your grade as very safe gear.

First crack needs respect but came easy compared to top half, which was scary to start (despite good friends in cave exit), became insecure and then produced solid wires for top moves to shelf. Got caught out by some bad rope drag. Very pleasing ascent for me

mattyork2 7 Jun, 2008 Lead dnf Got a little bit scared on this. Lat bit of really solid gear was at the top of the hvs and eventually fell off onto a poor nut that I sketched into the traversing finger crack, as I was trying to rock up poorly onto the ledge. Get back on it Matt.
