Rockfax Description
From the tip of the tombstone, make a baffling (6a until sussed?) step round left into the shallow groove which takes small wires that are tricky to place. The groove and steep jamming crack above lead to ledges. Traverse out left and climb the wall to finish. © Rockfax

Wow, a real battle, not hugely inspiring gear at the bottom, thought I was off on several occasions but somehow hung in there. Tom told me it wasn't too hard, then proceeded to fall off on second...

Haha, bullied Cal onto it and he had a good fight. I then had remembered it to be really easy, but I think I had my rose tinted glasses on. Was hard and I fell out the groove getting abit over agressive getting the gear out!

Really tricky since stepping off the block and pretty goey all the way to the top. Super lead by Andy, above not so super wires.

Backed off start previously but managed to commit today. Well worth finishing properly to the left at the big ledge to take in the full height of the crag and a few more present moves on jugs, though take some long extenders for this bit (I didn't).

On Fabrizio's gear, plus the extra couple of pieces I took to make top less run out.

Teappleby 19/Sep/15 2nd

Seconded to save time, but was probably harder to second than flash as the gear was really awkward to get out! Nice climbing. Top harder than the bottom.

gear already in.

Same problem as my attempt a long way back - did the tricky start and then messed up the steep crack. Got further than last time though. The very top shift leftwards (after the main event) is pretty horrible and feels unnecessarily tacked on. Didn't bother doing it.

Annoyed with this one, got the crux clean then fluffed the top!

Tricky wee thing! Spent ages fiddling gear in at the start. Flows well after that.
