Rockfax Description
A gnarly, but rewarding pitch. There is at least one awkward clip high on the route. © Rockfax

βeta: There's no way this is 6c. There's nothing harder than a 5c move - it's all about good footwork. Benchmark 6b, along with One For The Gipper and Inch Perfect (another bad re-grade). By the way, the line in the 2005 Dorset guide is WAY off for this route. It's about 3m right and trends right, not left. This also puts the Bawdy House line way off too.

βeta: Thought the moves merited 6b+ - seen the moves off the ledge done 2 different ways now. However, I the route did have draws in so I can't comment about reachy clips!
