Rockfax Description
Climb up the awkward bottom wall to the break, then pull over a bulge and continue up a large chalked-up flake. (Stick clip the second staple for the 7b+ tick if the bottom is wet). Move up to undercuts and rightwards to climb a short fingery section. Then head back left and up to the break. Continue up the pumpy groove above to a high lower-off (28m). When very dry you can do the start to Barely Decent and move right at 7b+ for the full route from the ground. © Rockfax

βeta: Very soft 7b+ IMHO, possibly just hard 7b, as once you've got to the break the top section doesn't add any real difficulty.

βeta: with the new bolts it now seems friendly going to the bodymachine belay -well worth doing.

βeta: 7b+ to the main belay. You don't place any extra gear and, although the fixed stuff is poor there is enough of it; no trad route thus far. Pitch 2 is different. Not sure about to the first break. I would still say baby 7b+. Feels a lot easier if you have done it loads of times but the crux sequence is difficult to read.

benkelsey 12 Aug, 2018 Lead dog 7b+ version, but also climbed to first bolt. Pulled outwards on the glued block by the 3rd clip and felt it crunch/move so took, pulled past then went to the top in a oner. One go to work it out then sketched up it as above. Won't be pulling on that again so that's as close a tick as I'm getting! Good climbing apart from that with a tricky final move
