Move rightwards seemed 5c to me (but well protected). Borderline E1/E2 5c?

Very enjoyable route. More gear than expected, none of it fantastic. Made for an exciting finish.

Whats this about a Rockfall in 2013 maybe E3 5c rubbish??, typical rockfax miss information, didnt seem any different from when i last did it 3 years ago. Unpleasant start but you know that from looking at it, followed by good solid climbing, the gear and holds reveal themselves as you climb, top end E1 due to the run out from the overhang but its all there, just have faith!!

Nice climb, good gear when you need it. Felt fairly soft for the grade but I did get a bit of beta.

Graeme Hammond 24/Mar/12 Lead β

An EXCELLENT CLASSIC GEM on a par with many millstone classics. Think the poor start may have been cleaned recently as not too bad. Thought there was plenty of gear and the crux coming out from under the roof is particularly well protected and not too hard either. E1 5b*** Beta as abseil the line first as a bit concerned about the gear which is impossible to see from the ground. Wish the guide book description and comments on here were accurate as i wouldn't have needed to blown the on-sight. Also seconded as Jim led after me.

Crap rock, crap gear and not that easy. Seems tough for E1.

Pretty stiff for an E1. It would be a lot better if it was a bit cleaner and didnt have the chossy start.
