Rockfax Description
The flake leads to ledges, move right to the carved letters DC and a step up and left to another ledge. Finish up the steep crack to a shrubby exit. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Requires a committed move on the ledge, not for the feint hearted.

Big flap moment just after the traverse when load testing a nut that pinged out and barndoored it hardcore. No fall though.

Rob Stuart 20/Jul/16 Lead O/S

Easy climb as far as technique goes. Little to no protection. Massive chance to deck out on the travers across the ledge. Top out loose.

great first half climb, peppered by poor gear, poor rock, poor top out and unprotected traverse from second half!

Thanks to another team stealing the top of the route (they started on Concave Wall), Mark had to make his own way up to a crappy, sappling-infested top-out.

Mark Collins 27/Jun/12 Lead rpt

Arrived in a sleep deprived state, to a muggy and deserted Denham. Tip toed around endless dog turds to attempt this easy route only to be forced up a harder line to the left by a newly arrived team who started up Concave Wall and then traversed left into our route. Rope drag and some time later my second was unable to follow the harder and big swing potential of the new traverse back left. Lowered him to the ground, abbed down collecting the gear, and went to the pub. Best decision of the day!

jonwright 25/Jun/12 Lead O/S

Scary traverse with potential to deck, not much protection, loose top out - definitely zero stars

maybe more than one piece of gear after starting the traverse would have been more appropriate slightly dangerous

Took the right hand exit after moving up to the left above the ledge, as didn't like the look of the gear (lack of) or the top out. Yes, wimp, I know!

Will not climb again, no protection for traverse and lack of placements for remainder of climb.

The ledge is a nervous moment. Was clipped into a pitton under the DC letters but was a lot of rope between myself and that clip. Wouldn't have liked to lead it!

Loose top out a long way above the gear. Was also having a real battle with rope drag - a frightening experience. Double ropes recommended. The traverse along the ledge is also quite scary with groundfall potential.
