Rockfax Description
The first crack left of the corner gives a great pitch with a bit of a stopper move past a peg, the scene of much profanity, particularly for the short. After a good rest, the upper wall is less demanding, but demands respect. Thought by some to be the best route on the whole crag. © Rockfax

Absolutely brilliant. Great quality moves, punchy crux and a bold upper wall to keep things interesting. Chuffed to get the onsight.

Didn't think it was hard to read the crux like everyone suggests. (Unlike oliver!) Good.

Last route of a pretty hard (for me) day.. Sat on the peg for a much needed de-pump then it went ok.

Fell of the crux on the onsight. Thought I'd do it second go, so lowered down and pulled the ropes to do it ground up, but fell off the crux again. It then took a few more goes to work out the crux sequence, eventually got it and continued to the top.

another hard e4(e5 when peg goes in 2 yrs), did it make you hard steve? ground-up again, fell off crux going up with left hand to crack, but pulled ropes and did again, this time finding a crucial foothold above little roof and just caught crimp, would i have onsited it?
