Rockfax Description
An aquatic amble across the series of sloping ledges. It is great as a winter route (see page 179) and okay as a rock climb in the dry but way too exciting if there has been much rain. Start on the right and climb up the groove or the ledges just to its left. Then follow the ramps up and left, passing the main flow, to a choice of finishing grooves. If already well-soaked, it is probably worth exiting easily rightwards. © Rockfax

Lovely weather but still enough water coming down to make soloing seem foolish. Scrambled up somewhere to the left.

good route, was a little green but nothing too taxing. set up a belay just before the waterfall crossing for a little fun. climb through the waterfall was refreshing, plenty of grip which was a surprise, thoroughly drenched but just what was needed on the hot day!

Self protected on roped solo. Just enough water to cool off on a hot day. Loads of midges.

Ideal conditions for it: wet enough to be exciting but not too difficult (wouldn't have wanted to solo it, though...). Got thoroughly soaked: one of the most enjoyable (and unique) climbs I've done. Joe led the first pitch and provided me with good protection (and found a lovely spot to belay from). I led to the top.
