Recently fully bolted and extended to the top of the wall since publication of the latest Lower Wye Valley Guide.

A hard start (past 4 bolts) leads to a rest under the obvious roof. With a powerful reach, grasp the first of a series of finger-jams that lead tenuously up the crack to a welcome rest. Move rightwards out of groove and climb the superb headwall on pockets to the BB.

monsteratt 27 May, 2013 Lead dog With clips in. Found the start and fnger locking sections tough. Tricky footwork by finger locks. Top roped second time and tried to work out better sequence. Need to be a bit fitter and slicker footwork to lead in one.

Billg 5 Sep, 2009 Lead RP Soft to mid 7b+ (my vote wouldn't work) and 1 star. Will clean up to 2 stars if someone power washes it, but very nice moves. The finish is easy and really nice on good pockets.
