Rockfax Description
A classic historical product. “... I decided to put three or four holds in a line on the top pitch which made it exactly the same grade as the rest of the route.” - Pete Livesey, OTE 35. 1) 6a, 30m. Start up The Diedre then traverse left to a short leftward-facing corner. Climb up this then trend left to an open groove and easy ground. Belay on the ledge on the right. 2) 6a, 20m. Climb up to a bush in the roof, step left into the scoop (peg may be missing). Follow the scoop past Pete Livesey's infamous created holds to the upper break. Swing left for 3m then pull up another scoop to the top. © Rockfax

Ged Desforges 7 Aug, 2006 Show βeta
βeta: Bush grown back with a vengance. A bit of a scrap to find the thread and holds, but not too much of a prob. Thread in very good nick. Where did the peg used to be? just before the crux moves leaving the top of the scopp? bomber nuts there, so no need to replace it. Amazing route.

βeta: Pitch 2. Removed as much of the bush as I could and replaced the thread just above it. Feels much safer now.

Dave Musgrove 7 Aug, 2010 2nd dog Harder than I'd anticipated. David led both pitches. Brilliant climb - Maybe I should have tried it 25 years ago?

Dave Musgrove Jnr 7 Aug, 2010 Lead Fantastic route. It's obviously been done a bit recently so is in good condition. Did P1 clean but wet streak did for me in the break on P2 so 1 rest.

Alex Mason 19 Jul, 2010 Lead O/S Just first pitch. Ok, not sure i did this right 'i went up the the slim groove for a 2 or 3 metres, then left to another slim darker coloured groove, then traversed on a set of blind sidepulls to a good foothold. Then cranked straight up towards easy ground'. It looks in the guide like it goes straight up the first groove then out left to the easy groove.??
