26m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Great climbing to a fine finish. 1) 5a, 10m. Climb upto a flake then rightwards past two trees to a good belay on a ledge. 2) 5c, 16m. Move up left then back right and upto a rock scar. Continue to good holds then move right. Step up to the ramp and follow this and the right wall to finish. © Rockfax

Climbed as second route of day. Faffed at crux for too long and ended up pumped and fell off. Annoyed, so later in day (last route) Howard was nice enough to belay me and follow me up it again. Clean ascent this time with no problems. Great route. Deserves its 3 * status.

Mr Sparkle 27/May/12 Lead dog

Tough to cross the small roof section, feelt more like 6a than 5c. So that makes it VS 6a then. Hmmm

Hard for 5c on crux...more 6a

Didn't want to do crux, so wimped out and got it after a few tries. No idea what it was like with missing hold but it was thin without.

Think I rushed into the crux a bit on second, got pumped before I could work out the moves. The crux felt like 6a to me - significantly harder than anything on Wombat.

Rich Guest 31/May/11 Lead O/S

Hard crux. Requires crisp technique and good strategy. The last thing i'd want to do is fudge an onsight having pulled on the gear, or claim it was 6a just cos I couldn't second it! :/

Hidden 14/May/11 2nd
Dave Foster 14/May/11 Lead β

Bloody brilliant. Done as one pitch. Seconded Crossbones/East route combo prior to leading this so had the beta for the first pitch. Took all the beta for the crux but forgot it, aswell as forgetting to clip the in situ wire. Nicely run out and technical over bomber gear and the top ramp was a delight. Steady at E2 5c.

As said before not very well balanced - crux seems very hard for 5c on small holds and rest is much easier. Wish I'd done Wombat instead, looks much better line.

Apparently has lost holds around the crux making it half a grade harder! other than the crux its hvs.
