Rockfax Description
Climb direct to an undercut in an overhang. Pull over to a narrow groove and follow it with difficulty to the top. A runner in Spreadeagle is often utilised. © Rockfax

FA. Kevin Turner 1977. His first ever route on rock.

Carl 08/Jul Lead O/S

Would probably be worth 2 stars if it were just slightly further away from Spreadeagle! You could place your whole rack in the undercut area if you were that way inclined, I found the protection generally very good.

Not easy but fun climb. Difficult gear placements to be made.

Thought I was on Spreadeagle until partway through the crux when it started to feel familiar (from seconding Vince back in May). That's the last time I abseil into Subluminal with only a cursory glance at the guidebook.

Closets to falling off a route I've ever been without actually doing it. Really cool though.

One of those times you fluke the sequence and barely need to pull.

Crazy top, had to rest on rope. Super fun though

Took a lob from the crux that turned out to be very greasy, didn't use side runner and went a long way onto the good cam in the undercut. Bruised heel and a bleeding leg. Escaped up the VS to the right. One to come back to, thought the moves were fairly straight forward, not used to this sea cliff m'larkey though!

The Ivanator 13/Jan/13 TR O/S

Found this required more thought than Stroof next door, enjoyable.

Attempted right at the end of the day, too pumped so retreated just below the crux with tale firmly between legs!
