Rockfax Description
One of the very best sport routes in the UK. Start to the left of the Cave Route Left-hand crack and climb past numerous bulges to a hard sequence that accesses the headwall. Finish up the headwall via gradually easing moves to a lower-off in the cave. © Rockfax

Duncan Campbell 5 Aug Lead dnf Just a quick scout after work. Bolt to bolted up but ground to a bit of a halt at the crux. Would need to come back with more time and/or a clip stick to get that bit figured out. Definitely something I’d be interested in putting some time into in the future.

spidermonkey09 9 Sep, 2018 Lead RP An indescribable feeling clipping the chain on this. A first proper experience of redpoint stress, having first tried it in May, getting injured, rebuilding the sequence, ultimately deciding to skip the tricky clip after much thought and watching the weather the last few weeks. First RP today in hurricane conditions after getting progressively higher over the last few sessions. Fucking get in.

Ed Booth 13 Aug, 2018 Lead dog Account open. Dogged up it . Had red point next go and got to the clip that people clip, and couldn’t let go to clip and grabbed the draw. Don’t think I want to skip this clip. Still tricky above . Amazing route. Can’t wait to get back.

nathanlee 19 Aug, 2016 Lead RP YYFY. Had a weekend on it in 2013, did it third go today which was well surprising! Skipped the crux clip which really added to it (Ben took some huge lobs!) Really satisfying to climb this so fast. It would be the best route on almost every crag.... (Currently sans foothold. Didn't feel hard for the grade.)
