Rockfax Description
An excellent and arduous route that feels like it is on the wrong cliff. Climb the technical slab until the rock leans. Battle on to the prominent hollow where final desperate moves leftwards gain easy ground. Intense! © Rockfax

Cracking route, had wanted to have a go on this for ages! Felt.pretty hard at the grade, like hardest e4 I've ever been on. Managed it ok though and will be back to lead in better conditions

Got the bottom slab first but then didn't want to try the headwall; not in the mood. Paul did it with many rests!

Managed all the moves this time - on a very warm day. definately worth waiting for a cool one for that top move. Feels like a 7a/b sport climb.

Stripped gear from break twice touching the ground on rope stretch. Antics felt a bit conspicuous at a crag like this. Ben had contacted me thru UKC lifts and parters and got to lead his first route - haven't herad from hime since though !Apparently a small wire is better than small cams.
