Rockfax Description
One of the great routes of Chee Dale which has absorbing climbing and gear when you need it. Climb up past a bolt and peg to a good flake. Make a tenuous traverse down and left into the groove (bolt and a rest). Climb this to a bolt up right. Pass the peg above and somehow end up standing on the jug. Squirm up the awkward finishing groove. © Rockfax

Took a ground fall trying to clip the peg but fortunately the nettles were soft. Eventually got up to the top overlap but couldn't figure out how to get over. After a few falls I found a sequence. A tough but good route composed almost entirely of dust.

Needed one wire (well two in the same place) as all the other gear was in situ.

Tried to flash with Dave's gear a beta. Just one foot slip fall while getting dark. Great route, will be back. Nearly a sport route. In great nick now if anyone wants to to try it. Good day!

Cool traverse left despite crumbling foot holds. Couldn't even work out how to get into the top groove tho. Dusty and slippy...

Climbed with falls and yoyos. 3 hard moved, well protected, brilliant and often overlooked.
