20m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine climb though most only do the first pitch. .
1) 4c, 10m. The centre of the attractive slab gives good climbing with escalating interest with final tricky moves (good runners in the horizontal break) to reach its crest.
2) 4c, 10m. Move right to the jamming crack in the upper wall and follow this until it widens awkwardly and possible to swing left and mantel into the base of the wide and easy finishing cleft.
A Direct Finish above the fist crack is a pumpy HVS 5a. © Rockfax

βeta: First pitch is great. Worthy of 3 stars in my opinion. Didn't do the fist crack for the second pitch, but did the crack to the right of it instead. Felt like a good continuation all the same, if only S 4b.

βeta: The last bit of bomber gear is just below your feet for the final crux move. Feels a bit insecure making the move but you aren't going to fall too far. Very nice first pitch.

βeta: Only did the first pitch (as the 2nd was out of the sun and below freezing) but that was worth 3 stars by itself. Deserves a fluttery heart symbol, the last (though bomber) protection as a long way below the final moves. Whoever voted for 4b must be either an E grade climber or 2m tall!

Paul accidentally did the top pitch of the VD first time, so we soloed back up later for him to do the top pitch properly, which is a very nice quality VS pitch. Bottom pitch 1*, top pitch 2*.

When we realised, we went back and did the top pitch again. Got pumped placing gear in the crack and had to downclimb after a couple of attempts, but left the gear. My partner then lead using my gear and got it first time. Then I 2nded it without too much trouble after a rest. That crack is a real beast! Getting a foot in seemed to be the key. A nice climb.

Was quite impressed with myself with this one! Backed off the severe to the left due to lack of gear and could see some decent stuff in this one. It was quite a gale but figured that I'd just go for it. By the time I'd done the first two moves, my fingers were useless, I couldn't feel them anymore in the cold! placed a couple of pieces of protection in the first break (wind + slab + sucking at slabs = fall) moved up to the next break, found two bomber runners which I was perfectly happy about so went ahead with the tricky top move! undercut the break, bring feet up quite high, stand up and balance until right hand can reach up and right into a groove thing. Stand up, get a jam under the block and reach over the top, absolutely fantastic move! Really made my day. I've realised that I really do suck at slabs, I hate having no protection (not a problem with this one) and lean into the wall way too much, fearing my feet slipping I reach up for handholds which is only going to knock myself off. Will have to practice this weakness soon! Second pitch of Rib and Face (Face).
