Rockfax Description
Excellent climbing up the diagonal cracks in the wall. A good jamming crack is climbed to the break. Follow the continuation leftwards until it is possible to step up and follow another crack back to the right. The finish lies up the daunting wide crack which is a little easier than it appears from below. © Rockfax

βeta: A good route, slightly spoilt by remains of various birds nests & dirt. I found the wide crack a little *harder* than it appeared from below! A pumpy 5b?

GeorgiePorgie1 29 Jun Lead O/S Caution! Don’t do this route (or any routes!) in 27C degrees!! ☀️☀️☀️???????? Other than that this is a magnificent outing!! The last off width crack is an absolute pig!! Might be slightly better in the right conditions, but doubt it’d be much better. Just prepare for battle!!

Ian Hylands 16 Aug, 2015 2nd Pumped out on traverse and rested on rope where footholds ran out. Pulled back on and finished. Also tough to get up to foot of offwidth crack. Right foot on groove to right, left hand fist jam, and right hand in break to right to pull up. Top offwidth thrutchy but secure. Hard climb when tired.
