Rockfax Description
A quality route with a steep start and a long move to gain the groove just right of The Last Gasp Finish. Easier climbing leads rightwards from here to the lower-off. © Rockfax

So psyched! What a fantastic route. 4 sessions. Not missing Gogarth or Ceuse at the moment ;-)

Ramon Marin 10/Jul/16 Lead dog

First session on it, did all the moves and made it all the way before the blocky undercling in one go. Happy how it went, more next weekend!

Rocked up to the crag after a visit to Billy Bob's stuffed to the brim with delicious nachos. Then utterly sketched, slipped and shook my way miraculous to the top. Well unexpected, well happy!

Good to get on this, got all the moves to the junction with Slab, no stoppers but none less than V4 either. Will take a fair bit of work.

Think the crux moves would be doable but good side pull too far to be useful. Need to go away and work on lock strength for starting sequence

4th session, an object lesson in the benefit of decent conditions.

linked the bottom to the crux. Ready for redpoint! Weather then crapped out and route got wet so I guess I'll have to wait 'til next time I am down.

Dave Douglas 07/Oct/13 Lead dog

Day 1 to learn the moves again. Went from crux to top.

keefe 02/Jun/13 Lead RP

I found this hard. Happy to do it.

Should have been second go, ended up being fifth try today! The beta turned out to be skipping the third clip.

Make sure you know what your doing on the 7b+ finish, as it's no push over. Video on YouTube.

Went direct, didn't use side pulls out right. (Not cos of "ethics" just thought it was easier that way)
