Rockfax Description
The centre of the pock-marked wall is high in the grade and very sustained. As a consequence it feels a lot bigger than it looks. Start under a handrail at 4m below the middle of the wall.
Heave up to good holds on the handrail, step left and climb the pock-marked wall and thin crack to the top. © Rockfax

Nice climbing but very pumpy with fidly gear. Hands get a little less positive and feet less obvious about 2/3 the way up and i had to rest on gear to recover some pump before finishing. Direct start seemed nails so ended up starting to the right which seemed like the start of the Severe.

Steep, fingery and insecure. The guidebook said high in the grade....into the next and beyond. Builder's merchant terms apply, terms like "nails" and "sandbag"

Nice route, does feel sustained as its quite vertical and the holds, while positive are sometimes small.

Managed a clean ascent seconding, after Steve led the second crux. As I had led half of the route before before falling off, it was a bit odd clearing my own gear from the route.
