Rockfax Description
Climb the blunt rib left of Act Naturally past three chopped bolts. Two pegs may help guide you up and right towards the upper hanging arete. Step right over the roof and clip the bolt. Up past the next two bolts to the top - bolt belay. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start just left of Act Naturaly, climb the blunt rib/arete, past the first bolt, (not there at the mo), until you get to the first peg of Antiquity. shared climbing with antiquity until passing its second peg then climb up and right towards the upper hanging arete, passing a bolt or two. climb direct over the small roof, and mantle towards the next bolt,(crux), and keep going straight up past two more bolts to a top out and double bolt belay.brilliant positions,and good climbing!
p.s. if you avoid the roof by going iether left or right, you don`t get the full tick!

first bolt has been removed for some reason unbeknown to me, as the start does not have any shared climbing with `antiquity`! you can however start as for `antiquity`, untill i put another bolt back in

JonesE 28 Apr, 2018 Lead O/S Nice and steady consistent climbing with no real crux but pretty much a solo to the first of 2 pegs. I did get one solid nut and a sideways cam with some psychological slings squeezed onto shallow flakes.

Mike505 29 Apr, 2017 Lead O/S The bolts below the peg have been chopped. There's one good nut near the start, a crappy one behind a loose flake a sling on a very small spike (weighed down with the large cams I didn't need). The peg isn't confidence inspiring and then you get what looks like a homemade cemented peg. But I think the route is improved for poor gear at the start, it would feel a little to easy on bolts and would probably be just another spot route. The crux and top out are all on good bolts.

dom94 3 Dec, 2016 Lead O/S A weird route. Found the first half pretty terrifying; in 20m of climbing there is a rusty peg that I did not trust at all, and I managed to place 3 nuts, none of which I trusted. It runs out a long way up to the second peg, which looks pretty good, but is just below the first bolt. The rest of it is spicy sport, and contains the hard moves.

harold walmsley 17 Sep, 2016 TR rpt First three bolts chopped. Third was near/on the trad route but not sure why the lower ones had to go? First gear is now an old peg at about 12 m. Not sure it should be E1 in this state? E2 would seem fair

tprebs 13 Apr, 2016 Lead O/S would be 6a or so with a bolt in the start. Feels like an odd route as its easy but bold climbing with all the good climbing well protected by bolts.

shed_hed 13 Apr, 2016 Lead O/S Very bold to start with first bolt missing, though might have felt bolder than it was being an early season trad route. Nice well protected climbing higher up. Rock is suspect in places.
