Rockfax Description
Magnificent climbing up the diagonal cracks in the left wall of Owl Gully. Start by a thin horizontal crack and swing left. Make some hard moves past where it splits, then continue along the rising juggy diagonal to the arete and a good rest. Step back right and pull over the roof finishing with a steep mantel. © Rockfax

Superb. Had a very positive experience on this. Felt quite easy. Was having a good day (my birthday :) ). Felt like HVS, but with a little (well protected) boulder problem to get going. Once established it's a well protected jug-haul all the way to the top. Some of the best holds on grit.

Gutted, spent a long time placing the gear for the crux and reversing back ot the gully for rests, then fell off passing the gear placements. Eventually managed to do the move after resting on gear for a while but then decided not to carry on. It was a bit greasy and damp but really just wasnt feeling strong enough! Very campus-y.

Wow what a route i got to the arete then realised i'd gone across too low so had to go back right then up a bit more so pumped by here had to rest. a minute later cruised to the rest and the heaven's opened. Then took an hour and a half to ab off to get all the gear back. Frustrating to get rained off but the climbing out to the arete deserves 3 stars on it's own.
