Rockfax Description
Quite popular in a love or hate way. Climb the slabby pillar between the caves, an easy start leads to a precarious middle section over a slight bulge and sustained moves heading left. © Rockfax

A footwork test piece! Not a single jug on the whole thing. Use the rests when you get them as it is unrelenting and requires a calm head. Pretty happy with the onsight, felt high in the grade, and I love slabs.

Route finding was tricky. Climbing itself is fine if you can use your feet. Nice route.

In the rain, in a hurry to get the clips back. Would have been much more fun if dry.

Paul had set up this route so i could top rope it and save the snap gates. I couldn't get my screw gate undone at the top and i got stuck. Helpfully some climbers nearby climbed upto me with a knife. Alec was able to undo my screw gate after a couple of attempts. I was free. Scary moments being stuck at the top of the crag. Very grateful to my rescuers!

Not sure how you can have a 6a+ with no holds on it at all, but this is it.

rachhunt 02/Oct/13 Lead O/S

Very sharp slabby rock route. Be prepared to be nursing sore finger tips the following day. Not a difficult route as there is so much to chose from in terms of holds, but sustained and with a couple of high feet moves.
