Rockfax Description
A relatively easy lower wall and flake lead to a hands-off rest. The next move is the crux and is very reach dependent. © Rockfax

βeta: I actually feel I am the only one qualified to comment on this. Being 62 feet tall it felt about 1a on the redpoint. However, when I onsighted it the next day it became much harder at about 1a+ishgiveortakeagradeortwo! A sliding scale of difficulty is a great idea taking into consideration such factors as height, weight, age, amount of wine consumed (in my case lots), distance travelled to the crag(!!) and other such nonense.

βeta: I’m of the opinion that a climb should be graded for the easiest method and whether that requires a specific somatotype then so be it. Yes, it's unfortunate that the short find it harder in this instance, but them’s the breaks......

βeta: I'm 5'11" on a tall day ;o) and this felt benchmark 7a+ for me. Like Richard said there is an intermediate crimp, which allows you to adjust on the undercut, and plenty of good footholds. I used a small foothold above the obvious large one and I wasn't at full stretch - no way an english 6c move.

rowland penty 27 Apr Lead RP 2nd go. I’m 5’11 and I can just get a full crimp on the reachy move, after using an intermediate side pull to really get my hips against the wall for full reach. Sequence is very easy once you know it, hard to onsight.

mishabruml 12 May, 2017 Lead dog Absolutely brilliant moves. Managed to get the crux in 2 halfs, find calum's high foot swap beta really hard but the long move to the crimp I did first go (just!) The crux bolt positioning is terrible, it's hard to clip and the draw hangs in the way of the crimp

Leftee 25 Mar, 2012 - Word of warning. Had a go on this last weekend. There's a tooth shaped block at the top of the layback crack. Grabbed it as an undercut and not sure if it actually shifted but a whole load of sand and crap fell out the bottom. Sounds pretty hollow so would be wary of it.
