Rockfax Description
Start about 3m right of Blockheads. Climb up and rightwards, swinging back left to gain the corner above. Climb this to the big ledge, then continue up the well-positioned crack and ramp to the top. © Rockfax

A fairly tedious exercise in rope-drag planning and prevention

Found it hard to get out of the upper crack as lots of the holds inside were loose.

Poor route: non line, never gear when you want it, a mid height ledge walk, and unwelcome blocks right beneath the single move harder than 5a.

Duncan Campbell 30/May/16 Lead O/S

Well over-rated. A wandering and boring E1 5a. Any difficulties are shortlived.

Andy Moles 24/Apr/16 2nd

Definitely not ** as given in Pembroke Rock - weak line, indifferent climbing and some choss. Hundreds of better routes nearby!

Crux on the groove to gain the half way break is reachy and quite technical, more like 5c if you don't have a long reach. The pile of blocks you have to stand on to start the moves into the upper crack are disconcertingly loose. Wouldn't argue with the E2 given in the new CC guide.

Last climb of the day. Went off route a bit, probably didn't make loads of difference to grade
