Rockfax Description
The wall right of the corner is climbed via a boulder problem up a flake. The upper section is bolder and creaky. A runner can be placed in Parker's, lowering the grade a notch. © Rockfax

Jug / block at half height getting looser. Used to take a poor small bit of gear - very much doubt it would hold a fall now.

Nice climbing throughout, small holds, a little too small for my soft shoes

mrphilipoldham 30/Nov/16 2nd O/S

Small footslip at the crux, may have slightly weighted the rope but was stable on hands and other foot. Good climbing throughout.

Gear isn't that bad, good low down then a few micros / offsets and a tiny friend. Flake definitely long gone, remaining hold is good. Lovely moves but does feel quite bold.

Nice climbing. Spent a little while eyeing it up. It went as expected, not too technical. Good to have some small wires or it'll be very bold.

Clean onsight. Got a couple of micro wires below the crux and then just winged to the top, flake is feeling seriously loose.

Leo Woodhead 21/May/14 Lead O/S

Nice route felt easy at the grade. Little run out at the top but the climbing is easy, so you never feel it! Thought the route was going to be harder than it was but the holds are all v positive.

Cleaned this after the winter. Note the flake is now more creaky than ever, there is a good placement for micro cam just below the flake, so no runners in the flake please!

TR on something 'hard' for fun. Did the whole thing onsight, but bloody hell would have been terrified on lead. Most moves OK apart from the crux, with pretty much no gear to calm nerves. One for way in the future.
