Rockfax Description
A fine pitch up a leaning wall on sloping holds. Best done on a cold crisp winter's day; then the slopers feel like jugs. © Rockfax

Great little route. Strange retro bolting going on means you have a lot of bolts.

Pretty pumped on the 2nd half - felt way too hot for those slopers for me. Nice lead by Jerome who made it look effortless ...

Marti has done a good job rebolting this route, extra bolts make the climbing feel super safe. More bolts on this than the rest of the cliff!

Standard swanage could do with one more bolt. Ed did well to clean it after fracturing his skull last time round!

Woo! Defeated about 14 months after a little slip on this route. Could do with another bolt IMO, but I am biased

Took a go to remind myself where all the holds are and then nailed it. Was a bit greasy, but good route.

Did not get it first go. Then worked out a good sequence, but on RP attempt got all the way to the top and then peeled off before the lower off.

Always happy to get a 6b+ os, especially after 2 weeks off from climbing! Good climbing, we did it on a sunny day against the guidebook's recommendation and it wasn't bad at all.
