Rockfax Description
Climb the slabby lower wall trending right - bold - to the base of a groove (possible belay). Enter and climb the groove to a choice of finishes, direct is harder, stepping left onto the arete is more exposed - both are excellent. © Rockfax

βeta: Excellent route if a bit "off piste". Intial slab, quite bold but technically easy. Really the description should encourage the use of the arete as the preferred alternative. The groove is a lesser option and very out of character with the lower part of the route. Do it that way and it is a fine excursion.

Tom Last 28 Feb, 2009 Lead O/S Is this ripe for the upgrade or is it just Curbar? Hmm, I think maybe the former. The 'Brain' slab has nothing but very poor psychological protection and the rock is crumbly. The upper groove is amazing, but the whole route is very insecure at the grade and very runout at the bottom. Lots of 4c moves + crap gear = HVS 4c?
