Rockfax Description
A fine and popular pitch to push your E-grade on. It has a few bold sections but overall it is low in the grade and adequately protected if you stay cool. Start 3m left of the groove of Sunny Goodge Street. Climb diagonally leftwards past a hard bit to a rest. Move up then right onto some smooth holds and a decent runner or two. Continue slightly leftwards with difficulty then up onto easier ground and a belay in the break. © Rockfax

FA. T.Proctor, C.Jackson 8.71. FA. (Direct finish) G.Gibson, I.Riddington 24.5.84 Aug/1971

βeta: i had ran out of 5's so i had two sideways rock fours to protect the crux. not reachy i didnt think if you get the right foot sequence. steve led this after me and got a rock 3 and a rock 1 in as well as the 2 rock 4's for the crux. it does feel bold but it is safe. worth the fluttery symbol

βeta: Don't know what the bold comments are about. Good gear all the way. Rock 5 was fine, and a solid RP at the start of the crux. New lower off thread and clean at present.

βeta: I am happy to confirm that the sideways Rock 5 in the pocket was good enough to hold a fall from 2 foot short of the easy ground. (Romped it on returning a few months later!)
