Rockfax Description
Climb the centre of the buttress to a tricky and butch roof (knees?) which enables you to reach holds and runners in a thin slot. Make a technical and worrying traverse out to the left arete and better holds. Exciting, varied and good value. © Rockfax

mikespooner 27 May, 2018 Lead G/U Siege tactics. Hard moves (5c?) through the roof are fine once you know how. Loved the traverse, just enough holds without lichen to make it possible! Top belay is poor, wobbly fence posts won't last much longer.

James Oswald 6 Oct, 2016 - Quite hard for E1. The move over the roof is hard 5b and the traverse left is lichenous and tricky. It's worth noting that there is not a good belay at the top - the fence posts are very loose. Maybe a stake would be a good idea?

Si dH 3 Jul, 2010 Lead dnf Hard for E1. Olly failed at the roof, then I went to do it instead and fell off the traverse above. It felt like a powerful lock-off that isnt far off 5c, followed by no decent rest at the slot and then a very thin traverse that isnt far off 5c either...and was alco covered in thick grey lichen :oS
