Rockfax Description
An entertaining, big and burly roof climb starting from the right-hand pile of boulders in the centre of the cave. A good knee-bar above the large roof gives a quick hands-off rest. The first bolt might need to be stick-clipped by the short. © Rockfax

2nd go. Double knee bar and a bit of grunting to pass the corner.

1st of the grade! 4 or 5 sessions i think, forgot to count redpoint burns. First clip in to make the boulder pile safer.

Nice finishing groove, had to pull on a lot of draws to get there though!

Did it first go, had worked happy feet, the right hand finish. Harsh at 7b+, i think 7c is fair

1st redpoint today, 4th overall. Defiantly one of the tougher ones on this wall for me, took more goes than souls! Sussed the knee bar move, very good climbing.

Big undercut to top onsight and fell first red point on the last move getting into the undercut. Good moves through the roof which were easier than I expected. Someone has flattened all the cairns so had to build it back up - it's pretty unstable but will make better next visit.

Outstanding route. Climbs like a hard granite route. we decided 5.12 was a better description than 7b+. Once you figure out the knee bar its in the bag. Definitely take a clip stick, the pile of rocks is pretty unstable.
