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

Slipped slightly on the crux, don't think I weighted the rope though ! Either way a crimpy and technical crux !

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.

Mr Powly 15/Apr/12 Lead dog

Didn't step onto the nipple and went for the semi dyno off smears others seem to have done - fell off then did it.

Very good climb. Little soft for 5c, but definitely E2. Step onto the nipple! E2 5c.

Took ages trying to figure out moves on the final crack, got too pumped, went for a semi-dyno and took a fall, got it second time with the same move. Not all bad,- faith in my gear placement restored!

Rested on the rope briefly b4 getting the crux!

First E2! Maybe standing in the big niche at the horizontal break is offroute? Otherwise it didn't feel nearly as hard as Cruisin'

This route is E1 5c. Crux is 5c but well protected. Couldnt fathom the crux and eventually took a fall trying it. No rest tho - got straight back on and got crux by semi dynoing off smears! Very good route tho.
