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

My best lead of the trip got the start wrong but with some helpful beta got the dynamic move then proceeded to just about fight my way to the top cool route

Still struggled on the top rope getting pumped out after clip 3, good job Ben Symonds for leading this even though you fell on every clip!

Fun route. Not so many slopers if you take the time to look. Fell cleaning the route (after the OS) trying to clip the 3rd bolt and grounded out. Careful out there.

Nice powerful/pumpy climb. Hot and polished holds. Dogged twice.

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

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.

marcb 17/Jun/12 Lead O/S

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.
