Rockfax Description
A good hard route. It follows a big 'S' shape up the wall around the small bulge requiring some big pulls on small sharp holds. It eases with height but not by much. © Rockfax

Close to onsighting. Low 7c+ in my opinion. Getting over the bulge is friggin hard

AdamBrown 25/Aug/17 Lead RP

Liked it so much I fell off three times at the same place. Can't image where the lost hold/s was/were, seems to flow perfectly as is

James Oakes 02/Jul/17 Lead RP

Didn't climb this route before hold breakage but mid 7c still seemed fair to me.

Apharri 13/May/17 Lead

Felt 7c+. I'm told it has lost various bits over the last year. I'm short 5'6 so didn't lank anything. Felt a grade harder than stone the loach. Quality climbing and I daresay the sequence is better now there is no big jug

2nd RP, 1st session. Maybe 7c+. I hear there used to be a better hold!

Adam_42 09/Sep/16 Lead dog

Unfortunately had the right hand sidepull explode on me. Suspect it will still be climbable, but obviously very much altered.

Worked moves, the jug has come off which makes the mid section loads harder I think (I havent tried it before)

Bolt-to-bolted once last year. Dogged once to sort sequences then fucked first RP when I put my foot on the wrong hold going for the pocket at the top. Went fine 2nd RP. the sequence out left is really, really good.

penny.orr 15/Aug/15 Lead RP

First 7c! First redpoint of the day, though not my fist session on it. Had quite cold fingers but managed to push on and clip the chains anyway.

najki_2000 09/Aug/15 TR dog

Footwork essential. All moves sorted bar one trying to get my feet up. Brilliant sequence on the undercuts. First try of the grade

Tried this climb a month ago in 3 parts and couldn't link it, some long moves in between technical sections. Really pleased to link it today. Technical limestone wall with really cool moves, so one of my favourites.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 03/Aug/14 Lead RP

Something of a contrast to The Prow at Raven Tor, which I had climbed earlier that day.

Played about on this on a top rope between Cooley's red point attempts, way out of my league at the moment but managed to get every move and topped it out each time! Even lead the easy last bolt twice :-P

Put the clips in then had two redpoint burns, both failed on the undercut sequence, ran out of power. Felt tired today but should go next visit.
