Rockfax Description
A fine and pumpy crack high on the wall is the highlight of this great pitch. Follow Slender Loris to the old bolt then climb to the overhang. Pull over the overhang and launch up the crack to the upper breaks. Finish up a short corner above. © Rockfax

After work smash. Did it straight out of the car having fallen off high on the onsight/flash with Esther and then seconded Nick with a rest to get a stuck wire that he had fallen on a week ago. Great climbing - quite a bit easier when you know what to do!

Hard! Esther had a good go and then I had a go. I got into the second crack but pumped out placing an ok wire and slumped onto it. Backed it up and carried on though fell off the section to the break as it's hard to find the holds! The hard climbing isn't particularly long but it is pumpy and topped by a hard couple of moves!

Done with most of the gear pre-placed from doing SL beforehand. Abbed down too to check out the crux having failed on this years before. Great route with tough sustained crux section.

Thought I was on slender loris. Needless to say, I thought it was a bit hard for 6a! Fell off lots in the crack.

Too hard for me... although I did spot some holds I wasn't using when retrieving my gear so may try again if I find myself back.

Put the wire in the crack, no stuck wires then! got to break feeling rather pumped looked up and decided it might be two ways to finish - picked the wrong way and lobbed - wire in the crack came out and had enough time to see the ropes below me looping down to the last piece of gear below the wire which stopped me. Food for thought, got back on and did it annoyed to have messed it up. Lots harder than slender loris

Failed to on-sight originally in 84. Tried again 25 or so years later and fell off yet again today. I'll try another ground up attempt after I turn 60 !!!!
