180m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 5, 2) 5+, 3) 5, 4) 5, 5) 5. Head up the slab just right of the vegetated groove. The crux on the second pitch features thin slabby moves that are a step up in difficulty from the rest of the route. Excellent rock with the exception of the last two pitches which are a little scrappy with some loose blocks on the final pitch. Well bolted where it matters, but with fewer bolts on the easier sections, a selection of nuts may come in useful, though probably aren't essential. © Rockfax

A worthwhile and homogenous route, the crux is a thin slab on pitch 2 which may be more like 5c. Good solid rock apart from P5 where a few blocks may be dubious!

Lots of good climbing with a stiff crux for 5b+ probably 5c but 2 good bolt positions. Top pitch seemed sound now and a good 5b on the last few moves, last bolt a little hidden. Didn't use the wires we took.

Pitches 2 and 4, great crux moves over the slab and some good exposed climbing on solid rock.

Led pitches 1, 3, and 5. Fairly steady apart from the thin moves on P2.

Had to aid the crux on P2. Absolutely brilliant route. Solid rock all the way and a strong line

I led pitch 1 (5a+), started to wander onto the 6a to the right but luckily Carmen noticed. C led pitch 2 which was very hard at the crux (probably 5c+ rather than the guidebook 5b+) but right by a bolt. I led pitch 3 (5b), unnerving crux as it was wet. Pitch 4 (5a+) was easier but still interesting, C's lead. I took the last (5b) pitch, which had a mountaineering feel - the rock wasn't as suspect as suggested. A superb route, fairly sustained at around 5b throughout, and well bolted (the guidebook suggestion to take a small rack was uncalled for).

Even pitches, move on the second is definitely high in the grade and it helps if you are tall.

Fiona Reid 05/Oct/11 AltLd O/S

Great climb with lots of variety. Everything from delicate slab climbing to juggy overhangs. Led pitches 1,3 and 5. Crux on pitch 2 is tricky if you are small and felt more like 5c+ than 5b+

with Mike
Laramadness 30/Aug/11 AltLd

Agree with others that the move on pitch 2 for 5b+ is significantly harder than what's on the 5b pitches - at least 5c seems fair.

Debbie led p1, I led p2 & 4. Roger led p.3 &5. Most people found p.2 to be tough, I would give it 5c+. It is certainly harder than some of the other 5c's I have done this week.

with Debbie Wilkinson, Roger Wilkinson
Rog Wilko 20/Mar/11 AltLd

An enjoyable ramble which brings you quite abruptly to the summit ridge, but as Pete said, P2 is a sandbag. Better grade the pitch 5c+ or 5b/A0, which makes the route much more consistent.
