Rockfax Description
Varied climbing up the full height of the buttress. Start up a stiff little crack and then follow the groove and upper wall. Note: midway up the pitch, loop out right and then back on line to avoid a blank section of wall. © Rockfax

Paul Sagar 12 Jan, 2017 Lead dog Tricky start but then was pulling through fine. At the crux middle section I went right...and made the mistake of continuing up. Missed a clip and then was insanely run out. Couldn't make the next bolt (quickdraw was in, but I couldn't get the rope in the draw!). Took a massive 7-bolt whipper as a result. Found the crux section really difficult, not least due to unfriendly bolting - but the rest of the climb was lovely. Be advised though: skipping clips on this route is a very bad idea unless you have a serious wingspan!

Ian MK 26 Dec, 2014 Lead O/S Despite the comments below and the aggressively scratched 38M at the base of the climb. My new 70M rope was more than long enough to get up and down and for my partner to safely top rope the route? I also found the RockFax description to be correct though maybe it implies that this route is immediately left of the panicle. Great route - Don't be put off if you only have a 70M rope!!

Excellent and sustained climbing. ROUTE IS LONGER THAN 35M so expect to abseil from the second bolt (in situ tat when I was there) on a 70m rope.

Cheshire Dave 28 Nov, 2009 Lead Brilliant climbing. Necky start, and couple of tricky clips in the middle section (bolts straight up, line goes right, and back left highter up). Top section is lovely romp up huge holds. 40m? rope needed, or have to use situ maillon on 2nd bolt to reach ground. The big clue is the 38m! scratched on rock at bottom!
