Rockfax Description
Stunning climbing with fewer helpful holds than you expect, though it is never too desperate. Follow the groove - steep for the grade. Look where you end up on the lower-off! © Rockfax

slipped low down then clean to the top so felt like all the work of an onsight minus the satisfaction at the top!

Best to avoid climbing this in the sun; as that certainly makes the polished rock more challenging. Save for the mid afternoon shade.

George_Surf 14/Dec/17 Lead O/S

Threat climbing, best route of the day. Pumpy to start and then much easier bridging with another hard bit at the top. Continually interesting

Bridges my way up, took the rests where I could and it never felt too bad! Awesome climb, great holds. Some on the holds are a but slippy for feet but just went nice and slow and it was fine! Definitely worth a top 50

Amazing line; bit soapy at start but fine if you move quickly. Overhanging - didn't notice the drizzle until I saw the video playback

Some rusty bolts near the top made this less enjoyable than it should have been... Could use a re-fresh.

Fell off between the 5th & 6th clip and cut my finger. A bit disappointed I didnt get to finish this.

The line looks stunning from below and is incredible but really sustained when on it. Needed to be a bit fresher to have a chance of getting this one.

rested at final upper section but should of just gone for it. but we all ways say that right

Oliver Branagan 05/Mar/14 Lead O/S

My style for the grade, the size of the holds due to the steepness and bridging due to the groove made for comfortable climbing, only just classing as an onsight as I'd been told the area of the crux and the clips where in, found the moves before the anchor physically hardest though.

Mick r 05/Mar/14 Lead β

tough route - with jams wtf!!
