Rockfax Description
The long groove above the right side of the pool 'rising from the lake', can be greasy after damp weather. The start is probably the crux though the layback moves on the upper section feel tough; beware the final blocky corner - it is getting shorter! © Rockfax

At 3 different points felt I wasn't going to get up this. Firstly going up the crack in the corner. Started laying back, but 2m up it was so polished couldn't get any purchase with feet. Thanks to the lady observer who offered advice about going face in - that helped. Then above the plinth belay stance, then last bit!

Was fairly grimy and damp the whole way. First move is quite tricky, then it's fairly easy grimy climbing - and then the last layback section was very hard, with okay gear. The move to enter the final layback was very committing too. Top of the grade IMO (at least when a bit dank it was).

Horribly greasy and first move is incredibly awkward. Alex retreated from the start of the groove on the last section, traversing right on to next line to join MS belaying ST & HR. I followed.
