Rockfax Description
An amazing route with spaced bolts. Moving past the first bolt to gain the wobbly flake is the crux - you might want a sling to loop over a small spike to reach the second. A steady approach above this brings you to a dramatic top-out on the rails. Belay on the Sidings level. © Rockfax

Bloke on a Rope 23 Mar Lead O/S Really enjoyed this one especially the top out, put a sling on the spike between the 1st & 2nd clip but wouldn't have wanted to test it!

JackM92 25 Feb, 2018 Lead O/S Had no idea of the grade but it looked cool so climbed it. Pretty cruisy as there’s always either good hands or good feet. Despite the 5 bolts it’s quite run out. Top move is brilliant!

ksjs 10 Nov, 2011 Lead O/S Really good, wouldn't say it was particularly E2, the run out to the last bolt is significant and takes in on some delicate rock. Bit of control needed down low too. Ultimately steady.
