Rockfax Description
Grubby but worth doing. Start as for Downfall Climb but continue to a good stance in a sandy cave on the right. Pull out of the cave and take the shallow chimney to ledges then pass another bulge to a wide crack which leads to a choice of exits. © Rockfax

Tom Redwood 6 Oct, 2018 Solo O/S Water running down the damp Mod section, very green on the VD bit, done using old-school techniques in boots, a good adventure! The position near/in the falls and squeezing through the hole behind the block at the top gives it an peculiar 2 stars from me!

mrphilipoldham 29 Jun, 2018 Solo O/S A repeat technically, as I escaped up this when the upper part of the Downfall Climb wasn’t formed over winter. Much nicer in the dry, but a steep start to the upper section!

lanc23 25 Aug, 2010 Lead O/S I think its shorter than what the book says. The decent into the climb is hard, but climbing is fairly straight forward. A big grassy bit was a bit of a pain. 2 Stars!?
