Rockfax Description
Start in the dip 8m right of Nosey. Highly enjoyable if a little runout in places. No piling rocks under the start - jumping is the whole point of the route name. © Rockfax

Nice climb, clean lead, traversed left lower this time, more enjoyable

I thought this was fun a varied with a hard crux to onsite, but obviously the third bolt is sketchy so I did the sensible thing and got the clip stick out!. Can't work out where to clip it from safely, maybe extend the draw and clip from below or place some gear and push on through to the good hold above the bolt. Remember pinch and pinch and pocket with the right. Shame the bolting isn't great as I actually really enjoyed the climb.

I guess ground up/ retro onsight or whatever from 4 years ago. 3rd clip is a bit tenuous to clip, definitely some groundfall potential if your belayer isn't paying attention.

First tried 3 years ago and had a mare on it, thats my longest 6a project. Scary 3rd bolt and hard for the grade!

Didn't have a book so wasn't sure where the climb went! Went slightly to the right and missed the first bolt.. Nice crimps to end!

Badly bolted, didn't want to hit the floor trying to clip the 3rd bolt so grabbed the draw then did the rest O/S.

First few moves are great but it is very debatable whether or not they are worth it, given the crap that follows.

Most deceptive use of the word jugs ever and horrible bolt placement. Ed nearly decked clipping the third.

A fall from after the rightward diagonal traverse would be uncomfortable, to say the least! A small cam for an intermediate runner not a bad idea.

Nailed it first time today. Is a good climb, but bolts could be in better positions.

gibsond 27/Jul/12 TR RP

Spent evening working the crux around 3rd bolt. Got it nice and clean on top-rope. On RP attempt took a big lob having not clipped 3rd bolt (land with rope between legs!!!!) Too tired after that so will have to wait for another day.

there is no way this is a 6a+ - oddly bolted and awkward moves through the bottom third of the climb

with Nat
Martin Bagshaw ?/Aug/11 Lead dnf

not strong/ ballsy enough to make the 2nd clip at the time. Would be good to have a bouldering mat for this one...

pretty run-out and bold, hard for the grade

IanMulvany 13/Mar/11 Lead O/S

the section between bolts two and three was pretty wet yesterday, which made for a rather absorbing ascent.

Hard crux at third bolt and then slipped off having clipped the fourth bolt!

Getting off the floor is the easy bit and good fun, the hard bit is above this. This was the hardest thing I did all day. I'd give it 6b+ balancy technical crux and run out
