Rockfax Description
Another reasonable route though this one has a few bold moves. It essentially links the start of Where Are My Sensible Shoes to the top of Drowning Man, via a small ramp-line. © Rockfax

Mid section made hard if you dont have ape like reach. First bolt is high off the deck.

Shit bolting, a fall at the end of the traverse would be nasty

I made a bit of a meal out of the first couple of clips by getting quite high on the route but got there in the end!

My first 6a+. Some great sloping lay-back moves up the rising traverse, although the very last moves at the top felt the crux. Awesome.

Made a right botch of the start, peeled, and next thing I know I'm being escorted to Bangor in a helicopter. Cock.

Probably 6a if you read the moves correctly. Small cam or nut useful for protecting last move as it's above a ledge.

Bit of french free on the first bolt, bit of a rest on the second, can't even blame the wet bits. Some good moves but surely at least 6b

Excellent route but sandbag. F6b.

Only got to second bolt.

Why the **** bolting! What I did was good (trickier than it looks from the ground) but with damp holds and thoughts of the rope scything I backed off before getting stood up in Drowning Man. Needs an extra bolt.

Caused problems for several people. Probably at least 6b. Found it harder than Drowning Man and would be more bold to lead. Not well bolted.

with Mark Hounslea, Colin Struthers

Committing to lead from the 2nd bolt to 3rd. Was wet in places. 6b maybe +.

Unnerving... even when seconding. Slate was wet and slippery in places. Enjoyed it though

My first lead climb! Midges everywhere, but other than that it was a good experience!
