Rockfax Description
Cue the Rocky music. A big bruising pitch up the finest bit of rock in the valley. Mega-classic and about sport 7c. From the ever-dry ledge under the face, climb into a niche, then follow the searing crack into ever more desperate terrain. At the horizontal crack, swing right for respite in the final section of Easter Island. A direct finish would be nice. With several pieces of fixed and old jammed gear it is nearer E6. © Rockfax

nathanlee 21 Jul, 2016 Lead RP Climbed in sporty style. Lowered down after doing the e3 to try the moves and look at the gear. Led next go and just about scraped up it, huge fight! Some gear was in from ben's go, places the rest. Kicked the top wire out which added to the grip! Plebs delight is a better name... as good as any pitch ive done on uk lime

hamer89 20 May, 2011 Lead RP Amazing, clean limestone wall finishing on a summit! Climbed as a sport style trad route as most of gear is in-situ anyway from threads, pegs and wires. Still felt abit spicey on lead! Great to top out. Nice one Ron.
