Rockfax Description
A superb and sustained route with a hard start up the shallow rounded weakness. One of the most impressive and best pitches on the Isle when in prime condition. © Rockfax

Greased off a crimp and felt super low on energy, one for another day I reckon.

Just about did the moves on lower half with rests, top bit technical then ok. I'll need a lot of Endurance to complete this!

Second go. Very chalked up at the moment. Very sustained but great moves.

Totally stunning route! Shame it suffers by grease mac greasy ming. Took more goes than expected because of it.

A really excellent route. 2nd go today plus a quick play on the lower 2/3rds last weekend. Good conditions to start but a bit worse for the actual redpoint which made for a big fight...

So good. Be careful with the final holds.

2nd go, not counting a rain-aborted attempt the previous week. V good route, top is the icing on the cake!

A post from the forums: Top section between last bolt and belay was loose, and I pulled off a large block narrowly missing my partner below, our ropebag wasnt so lucky! Several block and holds on the same level appear loose and have hollow sounds, so take it easy at the top! Spoils some nice clinbing below! perhaps the belay should be lower? cheers john
