Rockfax Description
A Curbar rarity - as in not too tough at the grade. Twin cracks lead past blocks to steeper flaky cracks that are best tackled rapidly. Protection is good and pressing on is the best idea. © Rockfax

Struggled, and failed, to place gear at the crux; not because there was nowhere to put it but because I was getting quite tired and pumped. So I abandoned a cam, nut and quickdraw for my second to retrieve and pressed on. A couple of moves later I was able to hastily place a cam and then made the final moves to the finish. Exhausting!

I felt a tad insecure through the lower cracks, mainly due to the challenges of placing protection.

Felt straight-forward but nice climbing on second. Looks like you get the grade for fiddly placements at half-height.

Helen didn't fancy the top crux so we pulled the rope and I lead with pre-placed gear most of the way up. Superb route and easy by Curbar standards. I think it only gets 2 stars because there are multiple possible lines to take up the route.

Why do I get pumped so much more leading a route than when I'm inside at the wall ? For the second week running I got pumped silly but was just able to wedge myself into the wide upper crack and stuff in my monster cam. I can still feel my forearms as I type this 24 hours later! Great route though!

A word of advice - stay out of that top crack as much as possible. Climbing into it just makes things really awkward.

More strenuous than I'd expected. It's quite tricky to extricate yourself from the wide crack at the top to move into the layback, though the crafty kneebar no-hands-rest was worth it.
