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

Was absolutely gopping around the crux, good fun on suspect rock

Brillant slate climbing, would be more like E2 if the holds were all solid! A lot of creaky and flaky holds.

Great climb, bold between the 1st and second bolt. A couple of the larger flake holds have got a bit of give in them, best not pull too hard on those!

bit snappy!

An awesome route!! Obviously no Dervish, but Would be three star if it was elsewhere/a little less snappy. Great moves, committing and bold, with a memorable finish on the hanging rails - well worth seeking out!!

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.

With Mark Reeves. Much being scared and trying to relax was done. It's nice to get to that second? bolt. Bold and runout. 6a+?? Awesome anyway.

Awesome route, one of my favourite climbs to date. E3 5c.

climbingpixie 20/Oct/07 Lead O/S

Awesome and well worth doing. More like a sport route than a trad route though.
