Rockfax Description
Classic grit roundedness. Climb the centre of the face (nail-scratched!) passing a slot to reach a mantel onto a ledge. Follow the rounded cracks above to an awkward grasping exit. After completing the route double check the first ascent date! © Rockfax

Repetitive climbing up a series of ledges, meaning ankle-breaking potential throughout - thus seemed massively over-hyped. Couldn't be bothered with the top bit (overhanging, undercut, green crack that was sufficiently flared not to take gear) so walked around instead.

Really enjoyed this, just a little green in the middle.

Hard finish, some parts particularly wet and green still but this just made it more interesting. Good climb.

Cold, windy. Escaped R below final frustrating bulge as rain shower was imminent.

Soloed start in walking boots (5a, I now know) 12/4/87. Led with Bob during a gap in a 3 day stint selling tea/coffee etc at Downfall in aid of Edale MRT, superb bivvy by fall.
