Rockfax Description
The long rib right of the groove is a fine pitch, quite high in the grade. There is a poor stance at 20m and a steep finish up the groove. The ground is 32m away. © Rockfax

A long route with crux at the top. Think 5+/6a.

First pitch only. Put off second pitch by missing bolt hanger near start of second pitch that would have given a fairly immense runout.

Long and tiring, but a quality route - fighting the Elvis leg by the final steep section. Beware the missing bolt at one hard section - an 8mm sling clove hitches onto the remaining thread to provide some protection. A good route to justify dragging my 80m rope to Spain.

Good fun climbing - had to re-rig the abseil part way down as we only had a 60m rope. Led as one pitch.

Hard 5+! Took me so long it was dark by the time I finished so no time for anyone else to try it. Much longer than the 36m stated - our 70m rope was a good 10 metres too short for the lower off.

Only climbed up to stance at 14m. It's a bit scrappy up to that point.

Prob best done as 2 pitches as the rope drag gets unpleasant otherwise. 70m rope needed to lower off in one.

bpmclimb 17/Feb/09 Lead O/S

In one pitch (just) with a 70m rope - knot the end! We thought it 5+ and worth three stars. Deserves a better lower-off.

Had meant to lead it, but ended up seconding it so that Nick could get back to the ground. And then the heavens opened. And then the rope got stuck. But still a very nice climb - must go back and do it in the dry sometime
