Rockfax Description
A lonely detour onto the front face of the tower gives a few good moves in a fine position. Try not to think about what is holding the tower up as you make a gripping series of lifting-a-fridge type of moves. A remarkably harrowing pitch for its relatively lowly grade. © Rockfax

FA. Tom Proctor, Geoff Birtles 1967. Named after a girl in a calendar.

Ticklists: Peak Rock/10/White Life.

Dave Turnbull, BMC 14/Jan Lead rpt

Very grim experience, cold, scary and awful rope drag.

Felt harder and bolder than 35 years ago! We did the new direct start this time which nicely extends the pitch but is a little artificial in places

Awesome but scary! Don't put gear in the obvious flake as you pull round onto the face as it is loose and if this comes off it will destroy the climb. Relieved to get to and get good cams in the break after the run-out (take a few extra cams about 3/4to 2" in range). The top section can be protected by an assortment of gear on the left side of the pillar just before you pull through the roof.

scary and loose. didn't get any worthwhile gear in the higher break so might have hit the floor in the loose rock on the top out came off. not going back for this one.

Great route, it's been on Rob's tick list for ages, felt pumpy but more holds than I'd expected! Pleased to 2nd it clean, Rob did a good job on lead as usual!

A very exciting climb, not one I would want to fall off! always looked at this as a kid and thought I would never be able to climb it.

Fun climbing. Not too hard, but the gear looked pretty ropey.

Oliver Branagan 17/Jul/10 Lead O/S

First E2, was fairly scared at the top with the runout and the amazing exposure, nothing to your left, nothing to your right... air all around. Loved it.

Agree with Al below. Bit loose and a a touch bold in parts but good quality.

Sweet route, route quality not the best, slighty escapable, but amazing monkey-up-a-sticking, under-rated.

Awesome but scary. Felt pretty run-out.
