Rockfax Description
The thin seam splitting the wall is reached via a steep fingery crack (5c - but easily avoided) and gives pleasantly delicate moves. Protection is reasonable with enough small wires. Belay by the tree stump and finish off upwards more easily. © Rockfax

Not a completely pure onsight because I tried it a while ago and downclimbed when I realised I didn't have the right gear. Direct start probably not 5c if you're tall enough to do it in a single move. Nice climbing but quite bold around half height. Tough for E1?

I have once attempted it in (I think) July 2010, but backed off by climbing down stripping the gear due to the wet condition on the day (and poor gear). This time everything went smoothly. I confirmed the gear before the half-height is not confidence-boosting at the current state, allegedly since the loss of a block. After the climb Tim said he was now motivated to lead this cleanly - great!

Sustained. BMC guide says it's a good intro to Lawrencefield jamming, but there's no jamming on it at all!

Direct start is a one-move wonder. Upper face is really nice and not strenuous if you get your feet right.

Enjoyable route, nice to have face climbing with crack gear. Did it with the finger crack start which just seemed pointlessly painful and out of keeping with the rest of the route.

Rather damp and slippery. After climbing a few metres from the first ledge to the small niche, where I arranged a marginal-or-worse micronut, I decided to back off and down-climbed. As soon as the rope got tense the micronut popped out, and I kept down-climbing all the way to the ground, stripping off all the pros without putting my weight on them.

Recent (this summer?) loss of loose block has actually improved the route - no loose stuff left behind, a good clean sloper (5a/b move off it) and now no uncertainty about whether or not the block is good! There is now an extra tricky move to get to good gear (you have to be stood with the block at waist height basically to place it, rather getting it behind the block), and from that move you might well hit the ledge if you fell. A top end E1 but still E1 and not E2 for me. And one of the best in the peak!

Took my time on this one, it felt committing at every move. The 5c boulder start was hard, the rest was sustained E1 5b, nothing soft. There were well defined stances with particular moves to attain them, each sequence equally challenging and a victory. Reaching the top with a final dynamic push induced a howl of 'Glory'

One rest before the last move, did the direct start though.

Can't claim onsight as i top roped it about 3 yrs ago. Has a slightly bold feel to it as all the gear is small, not E2 tho in my opinion.

5b route was clean - tried 5c start but couldn't get off ground - first foothold was too high and rest too polished + was unwilling to load the hand I'd just injured. Had to do upper crux moves twice as we forgot to swap the abseil gear before Dom lowered me back down (doh!)

with Dom
Peakology 26/Feb/08 Lead O/S

Went up and down three times. Felt out of sorts and nearly gave up. All small insecure wires and a wobbly rock.Made upward progress by just focusing on the next foothold...and the next. 10ft run out at top.
