Rockfax Description
A hybrid pitch providing one of the best ways up the left-hand wall of the quarry. Gear is spaced. Start on a small bushy ledge, 7m up and left of a small tree at the base of the crag.
Climb a shallow groove-system to a small triangular overhang at 8m. Move up its right-hand side and up to a peg. Traverse 5m left and step up to a short diagonal crack. Move up right and follow a narrow groove to a peg where it fades. Pull out left and up on small holds and finish up easy but earthy ground. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description

Perhaps i went off route as i stepped up a little where the traverse starts to consider a runner placement in a crack over a small overlap. U could then do the traverse at this level, hands a few feet below a grassy ledge at hvs 5b(5a?) , or not use that gear + traverse lower as topo at e15b (5a?)... then very run out. Would like to lead either.

Done both the original routes so on sight is a bit tenuous. Apart from the odd day pottering around this was my first first day of trad climbing in over a year - good to be back. The clip on TTL was, once again, the sketchiest move on the route. Not really hard but above a selection of fairly marginal gear. An hour later, and still smiling.

Great route felt soft for E1 but then again if the old pegs fail you would be in a bit of a mess!

My first E1 second - went well.

Thought provoking move to clip second high peg, good rock through out.

Nice to turn up at a crag and pull one out the bag when rusty

Brilliant climbing, and the gear where you want it but reaching the first pegs is balancy. Best climbed as one pitch.

Low in the grade difficulty wise though may be ahrd if this is your limit due to a long runout above 1st peg until the next one, got a poor cam in but nothing else. Steady climbing though, with a couple of tricky moves leaving the 2nd peg. Nice climbing though.

Worthwhile route even if you have done the original two routes before. Great top section :-)
