Rockfax Description
16m. The bulging face has a narrow ramp cutting through it from left to right. Climb on to this (an ungainly struggle for most) and follow it to the base of a crack. Finish up this, or the similar, but more exposed, face just to the left (HS 4b). © Rockfax

Ticklists: ROCKFAX Western Grit Grade List, Western Peak Grit 100 VD - VS, 100 Western Grit Stars.

Got on my third trad lead with some encouragement by the club captain. First gear placement is high, and the gear I placed didn't feel bomber. Had to tell myself to ignore this. Got a knee of the ledge and shuffled, at this point the route becomes quite run out. So psyched after this route, good confidence booster.

Watched two partners shuffle themselves along the narrow shelf with difficuly, decided to approach it differently and went for a short hand traverse and mantelshelf combo which proved much easier. Had to follow the harder left exit, and found this a delicate all fours traverse! Challenging route.

Didn't get on with this at all. A bit of a one-move wonder (onto the ledge) which I just gave up on after about four tries. The climbing above just didn't look interesting enough to warrant the desperate grovel onto the ledge.

Quite fun. The shelf is much more entertaining if you don't use the high hand holds. You can creep along lit ike a mouse!
