Rockfax Description
Climb the leaning groove to the break. Continue up and right then scale the crucial final wall (peg runner). Good honest hard work. The finish is often sandy. © Rockfax

βeta: Agree with Fiend. This is not the only line that differs with the description either.

βeta: The line doesn't make any sense on this: The lower groove is obvious to the wide break. The Rockfax diagram shows it continuing up the obvious blocky groove and moving right beneath the heather. There are no pegs on this bit and it's maybe stiff E1 5b overall? There is a single (not two!) peg out right of the break, indicating it would be possible to climb the steep wall to the right of the groove. This would probably be more like E3 5c but it would be bold rather than hard work, and isn't the line shown.

βeta: Often very sandy at the top (favoured by abseilers) Oh, also whilst here, the summit belays generally at Hobby are some sort of bolt in generally thinly-bedded rock... I wouuldn't belay on one alone, but there are plenty of big stakes.

hlegge 25 May TR O/S Steep, enough there, but sustained and pumpy. Got it by the skin of my teeth and almost peeled off 3 times. Not in my league to lead at the moment! So psyched to get it! Awesome climb

kingholmesy ??, 2009 Lead O/S From the break direct up the face instead of via the grove to the left, although I couldn't resist a cheeky hand out left for one move. A good route despite the slightly escapable feel.
