Rockfax Description
The higher of the two parallel diagonal cracks, which gets harder and harder the higher you go. Gain the crack and follow it in a sustained fashion past two pegs, to eventually make a dramatic exit into the slabby corner above. © Rockfax

Peg no longer there, but there is a bomber wire below.

Very hot with greasy slopers at the top led to a lack of commitment. One fall/jump-off and then just about smashed through. Would be easier in better conditions. *insert excuse here*

Hung around mid-crux for a while, thinking that I was resting just before it, then grabbed the jug. Not that bad. E2?

Brilliant line. Technical crimps lead to easy ground before the main event - steep crack. Crux tight at the top occur he crack. 1 fall only!!!! Silly

Watched Harry lead it so not really on sight. Found it easier than Bran Flake.

Felt tense and nervous starting this and despite the route not being particularly hard i inevitably got mind-blowingly pumped. So pumped I was unable to move up or down mid crux, stuck on a rubbish slopey pinch, and had to battle the increasingly limp hands and the lactic blinkers just to stay attached for about 10 minutes before autopilot eventually got me to the jugs 1 move away. Cool route and feel satisfied to not given up.

Nice climbing. Felt easier than Bran Flake.

Perhaps a lack of decent warm up or feeling tired but I was almost off the top of this. Very tricky pulling over the lip. Smallcams useful at the top.

Good route, fiddly gear, eventually succumbed right at the end owing to all the holds being soaking wet. Will return on a dry day!
