Rockfax Description
Climb easily to a ledge. From the right gain a smaller ledge on the left with difficulty and then move up the small groove above precariously to an easing below the final wall. Previously given 4, but now much harder due to the loss of one of the finger tips. © Rockfax

I didn't even want to do this climb but Fabian insisted I do it because I was taking the piss out of him for struggling so hard on a F4. Anyway the middle is really very hard. I was pulling on a tiny crimp whilst side-stepping when it came off and I took my biggest lead fall ever, falling right onto my arse! Ouch! I'm never touching anything below 6a in Portland again! Those low grade climbs are way too hard!

While half way up (!) I was informed that the climb is a couple of grades higher than the guide book... Moved right towards Opus and climbed, but did not finish.

hard moves in middle. forgot to reach out to crack to gain higher where the third finger is now not. demoralising as in rock-fax guide shown as f4, showing age of when the third finger was still there.

Never a 4 (5+/gentle 6a), hard but technically enjoyable (if you use the boulder on the ledge at the side below the first mantle you are cheating!!!)

Never a 4 probably a 5 or maybe 6. Failed at 2nd mantel. Manteled up and got right knee onto ledge but head and body moved to far in not allowing me space to move and get the other leg up. Hand holds around and above the ledge and v are very sparse and minimal.

A difficult mid section to this climb which is much argued over on rockfax forums. Check the picture associated with this route on here with what you see, you'll notice that a massive chunk is missing changing the grade. Not a 4 for certain but 5+ maybe 6a depending on your physique. Not one for beginners. Not a bad climb however, although we didn't finish it.
