Rockfax Description
The steep slab is especially sketchy for the short. Side-runners drop the grade a notch or two. Loss of a hold may have made this a touch harder than it used to be. © Rockfax

well named- top roped first and the moves took a while to figure out . led with extended gear preplaced in the break as the hard section was completely unprotected and I didn't fancy hitting deck .

rtdennison 28/Aug/17 Lead

First did on a top-rope to get the moves, then lead with the gear already placed in the break and a long extender so it could be reached from halfway up the climb. It was quite green at the bottom making smearing for the first move a little tricky but after some figuring out the two tricky moves were doable, defintely requires a lot of thought but is an excellent climb

A hold in the crack to the left may have been used

Where have all the holds gone! All very crimpey and slopey. Not sure if I can claim this one as a used the crack of Bitter for the move before the break.

Eases with height, A couple of long/balancy/hard moves lead to a committing move in the middle of the wall.

Hmmm, I might have soloed this more than 20 years ago, but can't remember, so put O/S. A bit windy, and a bit scruffy and lichenous on this day, which made it more challenging than it should have been. Could have brushed it first, but just set off
