Rockfax Description
24m. A dramatic pitch which makes up for its lack of length with some fine moves. Go easy with the large fragile flake, in fact give it a miss altogether! © Rockfax

Another great route - took rh version to big flake, felt more like 7a with beta but probably harder to onsight?

Did a more direct start to make more of a proper 7a+. The flake is fine to use.

Ya belter! Had a tiny bit of beta from Hendrik on where the crux was, and I knew the flake was good (it's fine). Had the most ridiculous one leg half-in, palm-up arm bar thing rest in the cave, don't know how I got a rest at all but it worked!

Felt pretty low for 7a+ if you stay slightly right and use the flake. The direct looked harder maybe a little harder than 7a, but I didn't try it. Very nice route

2nd attempt. Crux for me was after the flake which is solid.

So steep and pumpy, but good fun climbing into the hole halfway.

Failed the o/so because the stupid rock fax book said to avoid the flake that is solid in fact! Found it ok using the flake .. Amazing moves with no actual crux!

Russell Blackaller 10/May/14 Lead RP

1st RP. Rockfax put me off going for the flake on onsight so tried to the left which was harder. Used flake second go and went ok.

First day, bees nest in neighbouring route was a bit offputting on the redpoint!

Far easier than I recall from quick play last year. One hard technical traverse into the cave then pretty standard stuff to the top with good crimps.

Soft. Good. Flake probably ok but i would be careful with it.

Very powerful climbing with a technical traverse, fun. Don't worry about the flake, it's solid.
