Rockfax Description
Climb the slab starting on the right then generally stay just right of North Climb. Can be made much harder if the easiest options are ignored. © Rockfax

βeta: Trouble with this route is that the line is only questionable in the middle of the difficulties (final 2/3 moves). Eliminating everything useful (scoop left, flake right) makes the moves out of the upper pockets to the top tenuous and at a very bad height. Not terrifically hard moves for E2, but should get at least that for seriousness. Much harder than it's neighbour, Sundowner.

βeta: Did it with a side runner round the chockstone in North Climb, but it still felt pretty serious. Didn't notice anywhere to place gear on the top slab. However the route is very escapable and you do start wondering which holds are out of bounds

βeta: The gear on the top slab is laughable. Serious route at E2.
