Rockfax Description
10m. The centre of the buttress leads over an overhang to another that caps the wall, and is cleaved by an excellent flake. Finish up this with gusto. A classic E1 experience. © Rockfax

need to lead this, not as awkward as it may appear

marclloyd77 21/Mar/10 Lead β

Fell near the top so started again and led the route clean. Loved the move up to the overhang. First E1 lead.

Interesting boulder start, big reachy step up in middle section but almost didn't make it through the top crux, was fumbling around for a hold, through desperation I found one with much relief.

I always think it's unfair saying you 'dogged' something if you just had 1 rest, but this was definitely a true dogging.

An absolutely quality route every move is at least 5a and when you reach the hanging layback theres no stopping.
