βeta: Wimped out on the traverse onto the nose as I couldn't really protect the move. Experience required placing the pro as the route meanders. Twin ropes would be good. Can't wait to try it again. Can't comment on the top half of the route as I never managed to get that far!!

βeta: Took more than one attempt to make the fairly committing traverse (not actually too bad). The wall after is steep (overhanging) but on nice big holds and decent gear. Make sure you use half ropes!

βeta: Stepping across was ok once committed, but the wall after! Most of the good holds looked or felt like they were about to come off in your hand, maybe I was just having a bad evening?

βeta: The step across on to the overhang is quite straightforward. The moves after up a steep wall require some thought, but the difficulties soon ease.

The step out is a bit wary as you don't think it should be this difficult for the grade and so you keep looking for an easier route. Felt good once the route had been done though.

Although I really enjoyed this route I was really glad to get to the top - I got pumped in my right arm on the top wall and a little scared (as I didn't think I sorted brilliant gear). I did think at one stage I was gonna take a ride. Great route - not ever gonna do it again Now know that i went completely off route and carried on left onto the main wall (rather than stepping right and up into the groove) very sketchy for a few moves with little in the way of gear.

KateBolton 18 Aug, 2010 2nd No easy rests on this route. I still think Mike took the more difficult line at opposite the top of the arch and he could have gone further left. He dislodged a large block at the top which was 'exciting' for Paul and I at the bottom.

mikehenesy 18 Aug, 2010 Lead O/S Good holds and good gear but few easy rests. Pretty straight forward if you can keep a cool head-I imagine. Dislodged a sizable block pulling through at the top - beware. Always good when you don't kill your seconds though!

Chris Sansum 25 Apr, 2010 Lead O/S Really nice route! I think Rockfax has the wrong line drawn as it shows it ascending the face after stepping left above the overhang - seems to make a lot more sense to step into the big groove on the right, and then step left once you are blocked off by the next overhang (and this seems to be what the CC guidebook tells you to do). Seems like there is some consensus on this from the comments below.
