Rockfax Description
A superb route with three hard sections. The tricky lower wall leads to a shake-out at the roof. Gaining a good hold in the roof is difficult, then easier moves lead to the lip. One more tricky section pulling leftwards around the roof leads to the lower-off. © Rockfax

James Smith 15 Sep, 2018 Lead dog 2 tie-ins, all moves done in decent links and ready for RP burns. First tie-in ended when the rope sheath ripped off the core! Think the main damage was done working the first crux though it actually happened on a fall off the top crux. Was using a 25cm draw on 3rd which held the rope against a pretty unobvious edge which it dragged along each time i fell. Lessons (re)learned to extend things properly!

Keendan 7 Sep, 2018 Lead RP 1st RP 2nd Session. 5th time on the route. No kneepad. All went fairly well part from the headwall crux. Got a thumb in the undercut instead of fingers. Rocked up a bit more and somehow readjusted. On reflection, it might be a good way to do it.

nathanlee 15 Aug, 2016 Lead RP Probably the most surprised I've ever been to climb something! Felt awful on the first two reacquainting goes... Then managed to fight up it on the third, having nearly said take by the third bolt.... Lip moves felt easier on lead than off the rope... Bizarre stuff! (Nice one to Rob for the new bolts)
