UKC Logbook Description
Classic headgames up the shallow groove, with a 4m fall potential before even starting. Luckily the holds all appear as you need them.

Not another soul at the Pits. Completely alone with the sounds of the moors until bellowing YES! on topout. Without chalk on it, or beta, the holds really are weirdly invisible till you find them, then it all works. Just beautiful. Amazing line, three stars all day long. And at least a whole grade harder than Weaver's Wall to actually onsight IMO.

Lot's of holds to chose from surprisingly, though the top holds were sopping wet, so had to top out left which turned out to be 'exciting'. Will come back and repeat when it's dry.

Soloed after TR. Holds are surprisingly good really. Not as blank as it looks

A steep constricting groove. The holds are small incuts that are hard to see. No protection, so the ascent is always in doubt.
