Rockfax Description
Start at the four shot holes at the base of the wall - use these with caution as they are little reservoirs of water. Gain the right-hand flakes and follow them to a small ledge by the third bolt. Technical moves on side-pulls and a giant step out right gain the flake near the arete with a small ledge and bolt. Ascend the short crack to an awkward mantel onto the ledge below the final arete. A fierce pull out left past the last bolt leads up the wall/arete to the lower-off. © Rockfax

starts just right of previous route, 4 shotholes, straight up for most, swings slightly right higher up where it meets `A Little Pail`, then back l/wards to the lower off!

This really got me going. Great route if a little scary but ultimately safe.

Great route. Spicy but safe. Step right is possibly the best move I've done on slate. Initial pockets often wet, but a deployment of a sacrificial sock and crimping the edge of the pocket renders the start OK. Clipstick would be relaxing.

Was going to lead this but the conditions on A Little Pail put me off - good decision. Shot holes were full of water and the face in general was quite green. But, really good moves and the move right is pretty cool. A route I will save for the summer.....

Onsight, until the step right, then it rained and friction evaporated. Only 1 move left and I'd done it all. Gave myself the holiday tick. Prone to a bit of dust/algae.
