Rockfax Description
A connection of routes which offers some breath-taking terrain, however it is the easiest way out so make sure you are confident at the grade before committing. Follow Super Galactic through the initial diagonal shelf, then break out rightwards up to a rest on the arete. Move up and right to climb the steep juggy wall (shared with Faded Glory). © Rockfax

Very nice route in a superb setting. Two stars for the route but three if you include the ambience. V.Surprised to see votes for this at E1 and E2 as the guide(Rockfax) gives it HVS. Did three other routes (all E1s) that day and all of those felt a grade harder than this. Protection good too. Did it as a warm up route and didn't think it was hard for the grade.

Great place, full of atmosphere. Quite a technical climb, but I made a pigs ear of it and grunted my way up

Thought this would be a good adventure, but it was a pretty crap route. Not helped by my knee locking going over the bulge, and having to half hop up the slab

Adventurous and exposed. Snapped a massive foothold off, doesnt change the climbing.

Not too bad but a tricky move in an intimidating position. Only hard E1 as it's not sustained at all.

E2? Really?! An all round fun route but for me, HVS.

Definitely E2 as in CC book, however beware the line on the CC topo is incorrect, the route starts from the sloping shelf

Great route in a great setting, but you need to get the tides and the rope management right.

Definately at least e1 5b and committing. Followed description and topo correctly. (Has been upgraded in the new CC guide to E2 5b- 2011)
