Rockfax Description
A great route with a hard rock-over. Climb up to a small ledge, then foot traverse the break until you can climb up past a bolt to a second break. Mantel this and clip a bolt on the right, traverse left to another bolt, and make a hard move past this. A further thin move leads to jugs and the lower-off. © Rockfax

Couldn't get enough friction on the crimp with my right at the second bolt on the onsight and slipped off - Tried again after a rest with the circular hold instead and finished it. Then got back on later and got it all clean using the crimp - warmer fingers helped

After 2 falls did the move and topped out...lowered off for the ground up ascent. Complete epic, at least 12 falls before finally repeating the move I'd already done, incredibly frustrating. Fail to see how this merits E3, does one nails move right next to a bolt make it that serious?

2yrs since I first tried it. great route. bold up to the first bolt. great crux, high right-hand foot match and reacchhh! easier after that, but a little reachy to the jugs (wobbly).

Tried shoes on what I thought was the crux - it wasn't, ended up flashing the crux, but can only award RP since I stepped on the climb on a rope lowering from Dried mouthed frog. bugger!

Remember top roping this in the nineties and being stumped by the second crux. Tried it the day before but rained off then managed it today beating the rain by seconds. Fantastic!

Fun route, appears runout from below with just two bolts but in reality the only hard climbing is very well protected. The rockover was fine once committed and the dyno didn't really have to be a dyno...

Alex Mason 11/May/10 Lead O/S

The difficulty of the rockover by the second bolt (supposed crux) pales in significance compared to the next move. It may of been because i was wearing toe-down boots (smeary move), because im short, or because i dont trust my feet but really had to lay one on for the big incut flatty. E3 6b imo.
