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

Harder than I'd anticipated. David led both pitches. Brilliant climb - Maybe I should have tried it 25 years ago?

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.

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.??
