Rockfax Description
A tremendous outing. Puzzling moves on the lower wall are followed by ever-increasing difficulties culminating in a devilish crux right at the top. © Rockfax

One of the best routes I've done anywhere! Fantastic, varied climbing with a crux right at the end which is both strenuous and delicate. Chapel Head at its finest.

Wrong handed at the top onsight and fell reaching for the finishing jug. Bit gutted but such a good route can't really complain about doing it twice!

Draws in, forebodingly easy till the very end.... Amazing angle, can almost stand in balance in a few places

Strayed onto true path by accident, clean up to there.

Ace. Techy and interesting lower wall, almost traddy with some good rests. Then a really tough crux at the top with a shonky old bolt to protect it! The route finishes up to the rightmost belay - if you find an undercut mono you're on Eraserhead/True Path instead.

Great route, but a fairly shocking crux around that undercut mono!

Almost got it putting draws in, but off at final move again. Sorted out beta and got it next go (3rd RP). Really good climb with lots of interest the whole way.

Still a stopper move near the top. Can't see me getting this any time soon.

Superb climbing the whole, long way. Stopper move at the top however, so have to go back and suss it out.

1st go that day, 3rd go in total. Warmed up on Witherslack Alice

3rd go. Tough - three similar cruxes using small, sharp holds in the upper section. Thankfully, the rests are (barely) sufficient. I suspect not wanting to fall on the scary looking final bolt was all that got me through the finish!
