Rockfax Description
A good climbs that snakes about less than you might be expecting. Bridge and jam the long groove up to the overhang then pass this with difficulty to gain the continuation corner. Continue up the crack, eventually stepping right to finish on the grassy crest. There are abseil anchors up there, honest. © Rockfax

Guide book says HVS, UKC say E1 Felt, even harder, must have had a off day.

thought it was pretty hard for e1 - a bit loose and dirty but with good hard moves

Added same length tat to top Ab (7mm cord) & a new maillon. Quality climbing apart from top-out scarey/steep grass. Worth 3stars for the overall experience

Probably E1 for overall experience. The tat at the top - which you need to abseil from - is sh1t & needs replacing.

Misha 12/Jun/14 Lead O/S

Good route, no looseness noted. Fairly solid at E1 - first crux through the overhang, second a bit higher up when you think it has eased off! Grassy on last 10m or so but just about enough rock to climb on and put gear in, still pulled on some grass though! Save a red or yellow BD cam for the best belay gear. The abseil is a the other end I the pinnacle and needs new tat - 8 foot sling or better still take 5 - 10 metres of rope. Should have thought to bring.

E1 for sure. Big and hollow blocks on overhang but not an issue with care. Plenty of vertical grass at the top, save a few smaller cams.

Got shut down big style. I'm going to be back when i've learned how to jam better. Got some nice bruises from this one.

i don't remember much beyond the maddening throb emanating from the lump on my head after having smacked into a sharp rock while attempting to swing jamie across to his gear earlier in the day. i had a go for the sake of it - to no avail. jamie wont let this one lie. we'll be back.

Brilliant, juggy and exposed! Never desperate until you reach the grassy summit pushto find the belay tree long gone, good job I carry tat around eh! The walk in is definitely worth the hype...
