Rockfax Description
There is an unremarkable lower pitch to the right of Two Pitch Route that is usually ignored. Do this (5a ) or start from a stance on the ledge left of the tower. Move out right then head through the imposing bulges via a short crack with one powerful move to reach easier ground. © Rockfax

Jumped off twice when I just couldn't get that second hand jam in, but did it on my third go. The fall is ok if you jump outwards a bit to miss the ledge (well, at least for the climber, sorry Ed!). Very cool route though! E2/3 5c is maybe more accurate?

Great little climb. Tough move into the crack!

Only just onsight - just managed to reverse back down to the ledge after putting the cam in the crack above the roof.

Backed off a few years ago. Feels scary until you get the jam in the crack!

Fell off the jams, horrible at the bottom of the crack! Felt easier on my second full on go and got a better jam instead of just 2 knuckles ;o)

Excellent! Glad to put a few bad days behind me, I think if you are tall this is soft, sinker jams & bomber gear too, great route!!! - previously 2nded.

(top pitch only) EXCELLENT good exposure for grit, felt soft for E2 and only 5b max, will be back to lead this, worth a 3rd star even on 2nd!!
