Rockfax Description
Climb the fingery and sequency lower wall and easier crack above. It is probably better to finish up The Ugly Ducking. © Rockfax

Thought I had climbed this before but confused it with the one to the left. Much better route this.

Lacked enough minerals on the o/s. Really nice moves through the crux section.

Shouldn't have fallen. Lowered to the ground and sent ok the next go.

AlistairB 08/Aug/10 Lead RP

Blew the onsight by picking the wrong crimp at the crux. Lowered straight down and did it next go, tricky to read. Worthy of a single star I think as I found the sheer burliness quite fun.

Shit route, should have flashed it but missed a hold.

Mr Sparkle 22/May/10 Lead dog

Bottom section is very sequency and second bolt very hard to clip. Hard to onsight due to the unobvious nature of the rock. Top section seems trivial. Possible 1 Star route.

Snappy loose holds

Forced to down climb this (so the onsight is still on for next time!) due to fading light. Lower wall is a tough challenge.

Much easier once you know where to put your hands. Redpoint.

Had to rest at the first bolt, seriously hard and bouldery start. the climbing above is pleasant. a climb of two halves.
