Rockfax Description
Bold and precarious. From the right rib of the cave boulder up and right to a small ledge from where scary balance moves on the left lead to better holds and a rapid exit to the right. © Rockfax

Abbed it a few weeks back but only abbed. Surprisingly amazing and tough to hop on, thereafter gird your loins. Mega

Seemed a bit stingy at E3. Very spooky moves at a height where your gear is redundant. Good route though and clean where it matters.

Lots of ledges to stand on and think about what a silly boy you've been. 3 stars.

Awesome route, although ballsy when you don't know what's coming! Will be back to lead it.

All there... you just have to link it together without freaking out. Great climb, awesome holds. Loved it.

No one else at the crag so a bit gripping. Not too bad though.

Tim was a gifted climber and he lead this with no gear in a full length long flowing coat. Tragically he died quite suddenly (ill health). Unsurprisingly, he donated five organs for five separate life saving transplant operations. As a Yorkshireman he would have hated anything going to waste! I shall always have very fond memories of him and the routes we did together.
