25m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 5b, 10m. Quickly gain the thin hanging crack with difficulty and follow it to ledges and a belay.
2) 4c, 15m. The wall on the left is climbed via a rounded mantelshelf. The pitch can be improved by hand-traversing the rounded pod that runs out towards the arete just below the top. © Rockfax

Roaches HVS Challenge #3

MichaelGallimore 07/Jun/15 Lead G/U

Fell off the starting move, then lowered, piulled rope and led clean. Pretty stiff 5c. Part of the Roaches HVS challenge. We got the silver medal, then it went dark on us after skyline. All routes attempted on-sight. Fun day! Thanks Dan and Flavio!

15/31. Had a bit of a mare, definite low point. Fell a couple of times getting off the ground resulting in rope burn and draining of motivation.

lead 2nd pitch. getting into crack at start of route is Hard!

Andrew Abraham 31/Mar/11 Lead dog

HARD moves at the start, we took it in turns to get beaten up by this route, sent it in the end after some awkward thrutching, so glad to have done it afterwards, some nice rock and nice moves on the secon pitch as well, which looked a little airy on the lead.
