Rockfax Description
The easy crack leads to a bulge split by a thin crack. Reach for a jug above, then heave away to easy ground. The route is rather unbalanced, low in the grade and a popular first VS lead. © Rockfax

An enjoyable climb. The crack is easy and is around a severe. The crux move, a powerful layback and read, is interesting and worth a try. The move definitely brings it up into the VS region as would not be found on a HS, though do not expect other VSs to be so continuously easy away from the crux.

Just threw a foot up (shoulder height?) and heaved. Didn't feel particularly easy, though definitely not difficult (after 5 minutes of faff and searching for a 'proper' way to climb it). The block at the crux was wobbly, though it's probably been like this for years. I wedged gear in either side just to be sure...

sameloop 07/Jun/15 TR

Managed first time, but with lots of grunting and general fumbling, plus lots of resting trying to work out what to do. Quite pleased to complete it at all, though, as this was my first weekend outdoors and with only about 12 hours total climbing experience (first 10 hours indoors). No finesse whatsoever, and couldn't do it on the second attempt (too tired and forgot how I'd done it the first time).

... and she bloody did it first time. Still struggled with the move on second, and would certainly have not lead it the way I eventually did it. Then found out I'd got my hex stuck in and had to spend an age getting it out. I don't like this route.

Last route of the day as we were getting tired. Planned to 'sprint' up it and was doing so until reached the bulge. Some puzzling and test out of holds ensued, eventually decided on high foot and brute force, went ok actually. Well protected one move wonder.

For big folk the trick seems to be to get your right foot as high up the diagonal crack as possible, your left foot somewhere up on the blank wall and then to reach up high in the back of the crack for the jug on the top of the rocking block and then go for it.

though the crux feels like 4c it's the only move that is on the whole route, and the protection below is so bomber (plus there's almost a ledge to drop back to) that the route is really HS. that one move is quite fun though!

Laurence lead. Impressed with his efficient nutwork. I slipped at an easy place before the crux.

Brilliant friction day - ie. really cold! One of those climbs that convinces me why I enjoy climbing. Up to crux I was certainly not in the mood; cold, shoes hurting, intimidated. After I made the crux, ecstatic and would not have wanted to be doing anytything else in the world!

The first moves are dead easy. The bulge is the crux, which - if I remember - I stuffed with two wires. Up and over and then nice and easy cruising.
