300m, 11 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Perhaps the best known route at Barberine. The crux pitch is usually climbed by pulling on a few bolts at 6b+/A1 but it goes free at 6c+ if you're feeling keen.
1) 5b, 2) 5c, 3) 5c. Walk 5m left to the next belay. 4) 6a,
5) 6c+ or 6b+/A1 , 6) 6a, 7) 6b+, 8) 6a+. Follow the ledge right to the foot of the final pitch. 9) 5c. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The left most route of the main face. Pleasant and popular with one move much harder than anything else (this move gains the belay at the top of pitch 6 and can easily be aided - usually a sling on the bolt). 12 quickdraws, 2x50m, 6a oblig

Nice route. Very well bolted where it matters. First couple of pitches are average but after that the climbing starts and is very enjoyable.

Lead the odd number pitches. Free climbed the crux without pulling on the fixed rope.

Only did the first 6 pitches as ran out of time and Dave ran out of energy. Lead our last pitch carrying rucksack with second rope in for abseil, challenging to say the least.

I got to lead the cracking 6b+ pitch, great moves up high. Decided to ab from here as we had started late and the weather was turning.

Made it up to the crux move with the sling and abbed off as we ran out of time. Fun route, with a couple of spaced bolts on the overlaps before the crux.

Aided in places. A hot day - top pitches not shaded by trees :(

Started at 16:30, so only first six pitches only. Excellent outing. Must return one day. there is only one 6c bit which is relatively easy to aid.

Started late and ran out of time. Really nice route, if a little airy!
