Rockfax Description
A fun route which has seen some frustrated attempts over the last few years since the demise of the hold on the crux. Climb up the right-facing flake to a roof. Swing right and pull over the roof to gain the corner above with difficulty. © Rockfax

Albie 16 Apr, 2005 Lead dnf I had planned to do Face away next but the ab rope went straight past baboon. I eyeballed it closely on the way down and I though the crux - even missing the key hold was still climbable. Rich did advise against it but I wanted to try. All nice and easy and by the book until the crux. Banged in 2 bits of gear but wasn't too happy about it. then tried the move past the overhanging block - instant sit on gear. tried many variations including holding the ab rope but no luck. Just nowhere to place feet and no decent handholds to pull up on. Only gave up when Rich said he'd refuse to second even if i got up....so a brave attempt but still a fail. for the record , that move is definately 5b.
