Rockfax Description
22m. An fine route up an elegant buttress. Start at the left arete then spiral up and right following cracks to the opposite arete. Place small wires before following the parallel diagonal cracks to an exposed and awkward finale back on the left-hand arete. Excellent throughout and very varied climbing. © Rockfax

went direct up the face by accident where you're supposed to move further right into the crack for a couple of meters. Probably makes for a better route but a bit harder and bolder.

This was a real disappointment. Never really felt relaxed. Then, having got the chockstone, spent ages realizing that getting onto the slab wasn't actually hard. By the time I'd figured out that it was easy, I was just totally wound up by the thought of committing to a long run-out. Ended up escaping up the crack, cursing myself. Wrong day for it, I guess.

Backed off this over a year ago, effectively onsight for the crux traverse. Awesome rotue and easier than Id expected, no gibbering which was nice :)

Bit green (crumbly rock for grit) and cold, altogether hard for first route of day. Spent rest of day warming down.

Adding this as James says I led it. I can remember the route (it's quite exciting) but have totally blanked the memory of leading it!

Early E1 effort. Was spaced out traversing but probably only because I was a whipper snapper at the time
