Rockfax Description
Surprisingly exposed and fingery climbing on the upper wall but with good gear. Low in the grade. Start as for Axis.
Gain the ledge above Axis's initial fingery wall and climb the arete on the right to the mid-height break. Move right and pull up into a niche above the break. Reach good flake holds just above and left of the niche and using these step left and then up the wall on small holds via a little crack to the top. © Rockfax

Paul Sagar 19 Jun Lead O/S Bit silly getting on this when not experienced on Cornish granite, having forgotten to take micro wires - some of my placements were not the best, though I doubt I would have died. Didn’t fall off though so all good. Went quite far left at the end to climb an amenable crack, because the short broken crack involved moves that I would not describe as low in the grade E2 5C and which i somewhat desperately downclimbed from. Hence maybe I didn’t do the route properly? WHO CARES. I’m just glad I didn’t lob off this one as the granite below looked quite hard.

James Oswald 20 Jun, 2012 Lead O/S Superb route. The moves fairly easy lower wall, a little traverse left. on the face there are lots of good little wires, one of which can be placed above your head for the crux :) A technical little pull on small holds with small footholds, great route.
