Rockfax Description
Steep climbing up the back of the cave on good holds, finishing with some wide bridging. The crux for most is the long reach to the lower-off. Grabbing a quick-draw in the lower-off makes it easier. © Rockfax

Absolute beast. Slowly getting the feel for the rock. Got to final chain with crazy drop knee. What a route but felt very beefy for the grade.

Fell clipping the chains, heartbreaker :-( Tried to go again but had ran out of steam. Brilliant climb though but decoy chalk everywhere so hard to find the good holds.

Teappleby 31/Mar/16 Lead RP

Had a go on the first day of the trip and got to the final move. Then did it today, found it pretty hard clipping, jam is a bit shit and i couldn't bridge due to short legs.

Fell off just before the chains putting the clips in, felt pretty steady next go.

Gave it a go as the draws were in. Far too powerful!

Had a half arsed attempt 2 years ago. sent first time today. bridging at my full leg stretch meant it wasn't overly pumpy. stripping was a total ball-ache though.

Second go. Very thuggish. Hard to onsight due to the dazzling amount of chalked up holds. If you get on and check out the holds you may find throwing big moves between the good holds works best.

Bad day at the office...relatively easy climbing until the last bolt, couldn't hold anything to clip the chains then had an absolute epic trying to clean the route.

What a route! Short but very steep and what a finish. Thanks to Mike for the beta on making the final clip, and for helping me clean the gear. 7a in the guide-book but feels like a 7a+

chalked to the hilt, which makes an onsight pretty tough because there are so many pockets there. one big move up and left, and clipping the chain felt like the cruxes. A good route, grade about right, as well as the quality.
