Rockfax Description
200m. One of the classics of the area, which is only slightly let down by the fact that the crux is the first move off the ground!
1) 6a. A cheeky pull on the bolt is an option many take.
2) 5b, 3) 5c, 4) 5c. It is possible to skip out the tricky moves at the start of pitch 4 by stepping right then coming back to the pillar higher up.
5) 5a. From here, scramble easily up a short grassy slope to reach the final two pitches.
6) 4a, 7) 3b. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Great first pitch. Crux of the route by the first bolt.

TomGB 11 Aug AltLd Really nice climbing. Stew led the 5Cs and the 6A, I led the 5B and 5A. Spicy bolting made it feel a bit harder than it was I think! Route finding isn't obvious as there a few routes clustered together but think we went the right way.

james n 17 Jun, 2017 AltLd O/S A good route. Finding the pitch 3 from the ramp wasn't easy as there are three routes close together. Pretty sure we got it right. Also cloudy see any bolts for pitch 7
