Rockfax Description
A worthwhile climb. Climb the lower wall rightwards and a short corner to a sandy ledge and possible belay. Finish up the corner groove on the right. © Rockfax

Set out along Delectable traverse - but wind gusting felt too tenuous so opted for safer finish up the corner

Mantleshelf finish: scary, with thin moves to get stood up. Would have run away up corner, but did that last time! Relieved to cross it off the unfinished business list.

Really hard, spent ages hanging around getting a piece of gear in at the top.. Was pretty intimidated and didn't completely trust the wire. Lowered off. Then did it, hard and really superb.

Mantleshelf finish - scary and desperate feeling, especially with an alarming lack of gear. Its a good thing the ledge has good holds on it

Think it would be better described as using both the crack and the ledge on the top wall, rather than one or the other as in the definitive. To be clear having read some of the comments below, you can place a nut in the crack with your hands on the good ledge just right of it (ie before the top crux) but it is a bit awkward and blind.

Finished up crack. Delicate technical moves - think I might've threatened an Egyptian at one point, 'til I came to my senses.

The wall is a rather hard E1 if gear is used in the left-hand crackline. E2 is that's eliminated. ... Or you could just climb the crack at hard E1.

set up belay on the ledge, and followed will across the traverse. Vs 4C

I thought the top pitch of this was absolutely desperate and completely unprotected for the leader. Felt very tough for the grade. Had to be winched up.
