Rockfax Description
The steep right-hand side of the cave has a juggy steep section that leads to harder climbing. Continuing above the lower-off for another 5m to another lower-off increases the grade to 7c+, with the hardest moves being to pass the lower-off at the finish of the 7c. © Rockfax

Adam24B 21 Feb, 2018 Lead RP 3rd redpoint, it's hard but not that hard. A steep 7a to a heel toe cam rest followed by a hardish boulder problem to first chains, maybe hard 7c/ soft 7c+ to there, followed by an easy extension that doesn't add a huge amount in difficulty but is definitely worth doing! (40m route length)

shaunhumphreys 13 Jan, 2018 Lead RP Tried once at the end of yesterday, thought the hold next to the chains would be a jug so slapped for it second go and took a good flyer! Just about managed 3rd try! Sick route, not really 8a. Definitely felt harder than honk down tho!

will smith11 1 Jan, 2017 Lead β Never 8a. 7c to L2. This crag has some odd bolting. Why not put the first chain at the hole before the boulder and have a nice 6c with a 7c extension? The bolting on extensions to the left is screwed too.

sev 28 Oct, 2016 Lead O/S Easy 7c+. the extension adds very little, and there are jugs all the way up the first section. The crux is a technical v4/5 boulder high up. Note: The rockfax guide shows the lower off much too low down.

Dan Hale 14 Jan, 2016 Lead RP Dropped the flash attempt trying to clip the chains 2 days ago. Tried again that day but it was too wet. 1 go today to practice the crux then sent second try! Fantastic route, the best route of this style that I've done.
