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

So psyched to get this done, felt steady apart from a hold snapping on me at the beginning, gripped!

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

Good choice in the current weird atmospherics. Respect to A Smith on the flash using my bombproof beta:-). Removed old sling and one stuck wire.

1st rp.Very pleased to have climbed this.Last tried it in 82 just before Ron made his ascent.A poorly organised attempt ending in retreat from the niche,should've had more faith. Superb!
