Rockfax Description
The big corner at the base of the track that runs down under this section of the crag has some long reaches. Although it has become polished, it is still about right at the grade, but perhaps is a little tougher for the short. © Rockfax

Did this on the top rope after Gav had led and Stew/Ed I think had both had a go on second. Tough start but easer after that.

I tried to tackle the start of this a couple of years ago and got no where. The height of the first bolt and the polished holds all lead to me falling off at the start a number of times. This time I stepped up, clipped the first balt and was away. Great climb up the corner with some nice reachy moves rewarded by jugs on all the ledges.

My partner made the crux move without moving up. I had to move up with some thin moves. Think this route is significantly easier if you are over 6ft tall. Also some of the holds are getting very polished. CC guide now gives this F6a which is fair for those under 6ft.

A quick route after a days bouldering, as the weather started to turn cold. Once you have got to the 1st clip, the route is fine, but getting to that clip is tough - both Baldrick and I came off as seconds!

Not too polished compared to some of the lower grades climbs here. Being tall helped and I found it quite easy but if you can't reach then there aren't too many hold in between.

Good climb with a mixture of big jugs and fingery cracks. Not much for your feet in some places. 5B to BB. 1B is trickiest move. Slipped at 1B. After regaining compusure, went well up the jugs. Top section interesting. Go left of bolts
