Rockfax Description
The dramatic wall left of From a Distance. Very sustained climbing (F8a) with long run-outs, however a huge drop zone means you'll only clock up air-time should you fall from the final hard section at 38m! Follow From a Distance until after its second crux (peg and thread). Step left and follow the line of holds leading out into the heart of the wall. Some long moves on crimps and slopers lead up and left to a respite (good peg). Blast up the wall above until a 'point-blank' shot for a shallow pocket marks the end of the difficulties. Finish direct above the break of Mysteries. © Rockfax

Edit: The "good peg" at the "respite" on the left no longer exists and hasn't for some time. There is however, a bomber cam (camalot .4, the silver one)

Stunning. All the best bits of from a distance, and then some. Had a look on abseil and put some chalk on useful looking holds. 7c+?

Went ground up after doing From a Distance. Pumped out on the traverse but keen to go back when fresh! Bon effort by Oli for getting this second go.

3 goes on a top rope, but didn't manage to get it clean on any of them. Was running out of time so went for the lead with one rp pre placed on from a distance which turned out to be a bit unnecessary, placed the rest on lead. Couldn't believe it when i got to the top. Fantastic route. Felt closer to 7c+ than 8a sport. Edit - After doing more sport later in the year I might have just been a bit better than I thought seems in line with the other 8as i did afterwards

What a route! 3 goes 6 weeks ago, one of which I got past all the hard climbing then broke a foothold and took a 20m lob. First go today, placing all the gear on lead. Abseil-up style, no top-rope pracice.
