Rockfax Description
A great climb, again with a final scary run-out which may make it feel like an E5. After a fingery start, continue more easily to the break. Crank upwards to the final bolt, chalk your hands up and go - right has more holds but straight up has a good flake. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A great climb, no longer with a scary run-out. After a fingery start, continue more easily to the break. The headwall is sustained on crimps and flatties, where good footwork pays dividends. The final bolt is by a good flake to prepare for the finishing moves.

FA. Gary Gibson 1985. Gary also added the direct start in

Greased/Pumped off the OS a metre from the belay on a warm day in June. Far easier as a redpoint and far easier on a cool day.

A pumpy number, felt closer to 7a+ overall to me, maybe the mid height break let's it off. Really good second half though, tricky!

Draws in. Not nearly as good as Open Gate and felt about the same grade. Bit odd near the top- there are a lot of chalky holds on the right of the bolts, which the guide gives permission to use, but felt like the bolt was too far left.

had a play a couple of weeks ago but too hot in the sun. lot better conditions this time and went fairly steadily once I had the sequence for the top wall. Still hard to get your arse off the ground though

Desperate start and technical head wall. I thought they were both as hard(open gate) as each other with this hard start - sort of balanced the grade. . Just not quite as sustained .. Good route

1st go after a couple of top ropes. Different style to the other routes I've done on Two Tier, slopey and quite long rather than fingery and fierce. Apart from the start that is, desperate, and the 1st bolt seems to be useless the way we did it. Beautiful weather and great to nip into Cheedale after work...
