Rockfax Description
A great direct variation on Crossbones. Start on the raised ledges to the right of the big hanging corner, climb to a flake then move left and climb the wall past a small roof and some easy ground to a break. Step right and pull up the wall to eventually join Crossbones to finish. © Rockfax

Good climbing, needs more traffic

Got lost after the roof. The guidebook says 'easy ground' to the break but I couldn't find anything easy.... took a fall on to one small nut which was good to restore confidence after Deacon's peg-ripping ground fall.

Felt pretty steady which was good cos it felt desprate when I seconded Ad a couple of years earlier.

Alex Mason 29/Mar/09 Lead O/S

Bad choice of warm-up. got gear around small roof, didnt trust any of it, got realyl pumped and felt like i was soloing on the crux, picturing the arbituraries, but did it and definitive 2* route, feels like a gap filler but with great climbing!
