Rockfax Description
Sadly a bit of a drainage line otherwise it would see more action.
1) 5b, 25m. Start as for Apocalypse but traverse right out of the corner when it gets tricky. Climb the flake to a belay at the break.
2) 5b, 16m. Move left and pull over into a grotty groove. © Rockfax

βeta: what a sweet line imagine if you could do it with out being choked by dandelions and scared the crap out of by huge spiders and beetles! but very nice route considering! lovley moves up the crack after the traverse!

βeta: I thought this route was very good and hard at the grade. Not particularly dirty or loose and well worth the effort-don't bother with the top pitch though

simon kimber 3 Jul, 2016 Lead O/S 1st pitch only. Gave it a good clean as I went. The remaining vegetation is purely cosmetic and doesn't interfere with the climbing :)

Theo Moore - UKC and UKH 8 May, 2016 Lead O/S Led both pitches. The top pitch was deadly - loads of loose rock, vegetation, and a final metre of moss-pulling to reach the top.

Alex Mason ?Jul, 2005 Lead O/S massively over grown! it literally was like climbing along a forest floor for the first 10m came out the opther side infested with insects, dandelions heads and other such organisms. had a clean and got on with the main part commitin traverse and quite a difficult pull up into the base of the crack, followed by pleasant yet goey moves right to the top. at least 2* dont know weather a clean would enhance the route or not
