Rockfax Description
A stunning climb taking on the massive slab.
1) 27m, 4+. Move up to the high first bolt and continue past a steepening to easier ground and a stance with a lower-off.
2) 25m, 5+. Climb up the wall and take the last section past the final two bolts well to their right. © Rockfax

Lead both pitches, took the direct finish from last bolts 6a...ish?

eb202 03/Apr 2nd

Michael led P1, I led P2 (DNF). The wind and sore feet put me off and I tried to take the crux direct rather than to the right so came down after looking at it for some time!

Robert led P1. Bolts are rather spaced on P1 - a grand total of 4 bolts over 27m.

Might get down on rope stretch on an 80m, but you can do it on a dozen quickdraws. One densely bolted section, otherwise quite run out!

Bolts on first pitch are miles apart, 27m with 4 bolts??? Finish is confusing with bolt positions. Rockfax book says finish way right of the bolts but you can also traverse left on to the second to last bolt and finish direct(5+ - 6a)

Very sparse bolting on first pitch, 4 bolts! 2nd pitch doesn't live upto the guide book due to poor bolting.
