Rockfax Description
This long single-pitch is one of the most popular routes on the crag (therefore a bit polished), upgraded by popular demand. Take plenty of quickdraws. The start is the crux, but the thin slab above provides an interesting finish. Descend by abseil. © Rockfax

an absolutely superb, one of the best pitchs i have ever done

td72 29/Jan/17 Lead O/S

great route and impressively long, the bolts are all old style, luckily i didn't test them but im guessing they would be fine however i didn't fancy putting that guess to the test. gets a bit run out towards the top as well, its easy by this point but the rock quality isn't amazing at the top. felt quite hard for 6b just due to the length hard 6b? Great climbing though!

Thought we'd climb something nice and steady at the end of the day... not a good choice! very thin awkward climbing on spaced old bolts. Scary. Felt more like at least 6b+ Good effort to rachel on the lead

Terrifying. Really techy, hard to navigate, old rusty bolts. Shit the bed.

6b? It was a damn site harder than the 6b+ around the corner. I was red faced and anoxic by the top, and by the time I had clawed my way up to the the good holds they were of little use to me I was that exhausted. Fair play to brave leader as the bolts don't warrant too much inspection or consideration if you don't want to end up gripped...

Sustained, old bolts, techy 6b/6b+. JUST made it down on an 80m rope.

stopped at the lower off on the left. felt hard for 6a+ but it was a bit windy. didn't like it much either. I wasn't surprised when my belayer announced that we were on the 6c on the left (we weren't!)

finished at mid height lower off!never 6a+,nearer to 6c and very hard with rusting bolts!not worth doing in my opinion!

Great climbing but felt hard for the grade and quite scary. Lots of rusty bolts to help sow the seed of doubt.

A long, sustained pitch, trying to avoid thinking about how reliable the chain bolts were

Neil R 28/Nov/05 2nd

Steep route, only just managed to second.

Paul Robertson 26/Nov/05 2nd O/S

Once the hard section is reached it keeps on coming. Several sections of balance moves, two sections of steep moves. Physically and emotionally intense. Probably the best route of the week.
