Rockfax Description
A bold route; another of Gardom's fine E3 ticks. It is pushy in its central part, the runners and holds are there, though both take some finding, before moving left to finish. The even bolder direct finish is Old Croc, E4 6a. © Rockfax

Came off the crux, ripped out a cam, feet hit the ground . Second time no problems and felt like a tit for falling off! Kudos if you can get a runner in the vertical crack on the crux!

scary as gear wasn't 100 % but brilliant!

Ed Babs 23/Jul/16 Lead O/S

Looked like a broken crimp on the face - right hand hold at the good foothold, but you can still get something off the right hand end of what remains. Excellent climb - had to search for some commitment before starting the sequence through the upper wall. Edit: I can't believe Marti climbed this! Is there hidden gear?

Something worth doing on a cold day when none of us was feeling up to much, I suppose. Clean on 2nd attempt.

Very nice climb, tried this years ago, felt easy today!

Wood for Trees 16/Nov/13 Lead O/S

Couple of nice pulls, feels short. No point in the flared horizontal cams, just don't fall.

Brilliant and quite bold little number, sequence is obvious and not too difficult but the gear is low for the last move, wouldnt wana fall from there.

Misha 20/Jun/10 Lead O/S

Nice line. Waited around on the good foothold for a while (only a half rest on crimps as it's quite steep on that bit) before committing to the moves leading to the break. The sequence proved to be surprisingly easy. Wouldn't have wanted to fall off at that point.
