Rockfax Description
The wall left of the corner has a blank section which is usually bypassed on the right. More like 7b if you climb direct from the flake. Also known as Kom ombo and Last Minute. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
So called because we were told about it at the 'last minute' before going to the printers - the correct name is 'Kom Ombo'. Unfortunately the information given to us was slightly out since the route is longer than stated in the guidebook at more like 36m.

Direct line off top of flake. Take care, large loose block on top of flake looks like it could detach at some point

Direct Boulder Problem, 6c+ up to V4 boulder with a 6a finish. Great Route. Probably comes out somewhere around 7b/+

Jemima Churchhouse 05/Dec/17 Lead dnf

Timo was sandbagged by the Rockfax guide and got on this with a 60m rope when the route was actually 36-ish m long. He came down, and I lead up to the flake and rescued his draws. Slabby 6c+/7a up to there?

Long term project complete! Slightly left at the flake through the very crimpy and dynamic V3/4(?) boulder makes a nice and very long 7b/+. 70m rope will just about get you down.

Ed Babs 26/Feb/17 Lead dog

Superb, but misread the holds moving left from the top of the flake. As everyone says - it goes all the way to the top and you need a 70m rope to get down.

2nd go. Great crux move coming off the flake but I fluffed it first time. The line is further right than the 2006 rockfax suggests. I stood on the slipping pay off the ledge and then did the difficult crux move, I guess this is what people call the direct. Didn't feel 7b+ though as mentioned below.

Absolutely requires a 70m rope. Went right at the flake to make a sustained and scary 7a.

Dan Hale 13/Nov/15 Lead O/S

Be wary of the flake, sounded very hollow, think it'll fall down one day! Lovely moves low down and an exciting finish. Ran out of quickdraws even though I took 14! (route is way longer than Rockfax suggest)

Fell off just before the sloper/buldge section under the flake - was resting with a thumb and the hold snapped off! Almost got killed following the rockfax guide as route is over 10m longer than stated so had to bail just after the flake; other than that was an awesome route.

Very fun climbing but it's scary if you go right after the flake before traversing back left to avoid 7b+ crux. I imagine it's scary doing the 7b+ version too.

KKilroy ?/Dec/14 Lead dog

Very cruxy 7b+ direct off of flake. And close to 40m long.

Nice technical lower wall. Went indirect to right at flake ( bold but very we'll chalked) as direct didn't look like good warm up.

ran out of draws so had to dog up it. shame as a pretty good route if you ignore the nails crux. someone suggested that the line past the flake may actually be a new route and 'last minute' be to the left. dunno.

This is actually a climb called Kom Ombo which is 36 metres long and nearer to 7b if done direct. Exposed 6c+ if following the group. There is no lower off at 24 metres. Make sure you have a long enough rope to lower off.

fell off the first move but did the rest o/s. Not very hard for 7a at all.....

jacobjlloyd 09/Jun/10 TR O/S

Had to TR due to complications... went up the 8a+ by mistake and needed to retreive the draws with complicated ropework!

jacobjlloyd 09/Jun/10 Lead rpt

Was so good the first time I did it again! Not sustained really, crimpy crux at the bottom. A tad soft.

Not 24m, nearly 44m. A big pitch ranit out missing 2 bolts, and then threading the lower-off with my arm around the chain, exhilerating. Crux involves some really thin moves off a small ledge unless 5' 11"+.

with Matilda

Is not 24m long (nearer 38m) and def not 7a if done direct.
