Rockfax Description
After a slightly artificial start (or step in from Spartacus), superb, steep blob-climbing leads to a step left where more testing moves are required before the things ease. © Rockfax

2nd go.technical slippery slab at the beginning was the main challenge. Great climb.

Wrong handed at the top on the onsight, first part ruins the route completely

Dandan82 21/Aug/17 Lead O/S

I'd give it 7b and solid at that. The fingery problem at the start doesn't really sit well with the rest of the route but at least it's not been chipped.

Battled my way up to the top of the tufa and just about managed to shake out enough to make it to the jug ladder to the chains. shame about the desperate starting moves though!

Nearly had the onsight but was a little pumped and so didn't read the crux properly. Felt much easier second time and so got it 1st RP. Very pleasant, crux moves are lovely. Still gets 7b in the newest guide so it's a shame my logbook for this trip doesn't get higher than 7a+ on UKC!

Superb pitch, even better than Spartacus. More pumpy but easier moves. Did not seem that much easier overall. Second try after a brief rest. A slight breeze helped mitigate the humidity. Seems like possibly the right grade (easy 7b), E5 6b, but I might be tired or had a duff sequence.

Awesome upper wall. Definitely felt 7b when compared to similar style routes on the island...

Pumpy wall climbing with a heinous looking(but actually amenable) bouldery thin start. Pleased with the OS on this one, probably read it wrong and had to hang in there on the hardest move !

MIssed the O/S by a silly mistake. got it on the next go. Belayed young Mike Hopkins as he on sighted it age 14.

Morgan Woods 24/Sep/10 Lead RP

Tough one but got it done in a day. Thin start which needs dry conditions. Crux has a slightly hard to read sequence.
