Rockfax Description
Climb straight up the wall to the overlap (poor rest in a niche) then follow the thin, pumpy crack above. The start is serious; the hard moves near the top can be protected. © Rockfax

βeta: Hugely enjoyable and better than any so-called route at Millstone etc etc. Good holds, good gear, and just good fun. Good value at E2 as well...

βeta: Amazing route. The rest is hardly a rest, the start is quite run out but a dodgy cam 2 fits in the low flared crack. Keep pushing on at the top as the holds keep coming!

mrphilipoldham 18 Sep 2nd dog One proper rest on the rope but had it tight most of the way. Still pumped from Central Route so didn’t do as bad as I expected at the bottom! Good route, everything’s there.. just apply strength.

Leo Woodhead 9 Jul, 2014 Lead dog Completely blew the onsight. Will have to go back to lead it clean. Really nice route, albeit a little difficult to read with some interesting moves. Lots of gear as well so there's no excuse, if you're leading at this grade, get on it! Can't wait to get back on it.
