18m.

Rockfax Description
18m. Low in the grade but serious and with a bold finale. Once thought to be, "only suitable for married men and others accustomed to taking risks". Climb the slab to the left edge of the overhang. Move up then trend back right crossing the side-wall on polished holds to the airy arete and a finish up a short crack. It is also possible to climb the side-wall direct until an awkward move reaches holds and gear, at a more normal HVS. © Rockfax

βeta: Very green, the direct appeared to be even more slimey so I took the original line. Protection was poor until I reached a perfect nut about four moves from the right edge of the face, but by then it's pretty much in the bag anyway. Not difficult, but not one to underestimate either.

βeta: Try to stay high and left after the fist mantel: there are runners and better holds and you can check out where the direct shoots off. Standard VS 4b climbing if done this way.

βeta: Rather than completely avoiding the overhang, if you step across to it you can get a friend in, then pull back across to to the left and up. 4c but protected.

βeta: The climbing isn't hard for VS it's just very bold. You can get one good nut in at the start of the traverse. Historically it was 2 pitches with your belayer in the groove to the left before the traverse, no safer but at least you wouldn't crush your belayer on the way down!

Rog Wilko 31 May, 2009 Lead Hadn't done this for many years (it was only hard severe then!). There isn't much more gear than there was forty years ago - where the small wire goes now it used to be possible to fiddle in a Moac (remember those?) sideways on. I never tested the Moac, but I'd be confident of the #3 Rock.
