Rockfax Description
1) 5, 2) 5, 3) 5, 4) 4+, 5) 4+, 6) 4+, 7) 4+, 8) 4+, 9) 5. Fills the gap to the right of Fleur de rhodo and might be useful if that route is busy, which is sometimes is at weekends. Start just right of where Fleur de rhodo crosses the ledge system. The bolts are a bit spaced - carry a small rack. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Just to the right of Fleur de Rhodo on the grassy ledge that cuts across the face form the start of Tapas sans dalle, name marked on the rock. There are two bolts just below the level of the ledge. 10 pitches, 5b, 5b, 5b, 4c, 4c, 4c, 4c, 4c, 5b 4b. topo says semi equipped with 6 quick draws needed but there are bolts all the way, pretty spaced so a few nuts/cams are useful. 12 quick draws might be needed on some pitches if you clip all the bolts and place some gear. There are 10 obvious pitches with double bolt belays and no pitch longer than 50m. The hardest pitches seemed to be two and three but pitch one is no walkover, especially if you are not used to granite friction climbing of which there is lots on this face.

Andy Nisbet 24 Oct, 2018 AltLd We did 11 pitches, 5a+, 5b, 5b, 5c, 4c, 4c, 5b, 4c, 4c, 4c, 4a. There were definitely 11 pitches to the summit. Only 10 if you ignore the last one, but it does have bolt runners. No trad gear taken or needed. I thought 3 stars.

Simon Caldwell 12 Oct, 2018 AltLd O/S 10 pitches, I led the odd ones. Superb weather and we had the entire crag to ourselves! Excellent route, especially the first half. Grade is 5b as per the local guide, but p3 is high in the grade. Fully bolted, no trad gear needed, and ignore what the local guide says about pitches longer than 50m - there aren't any.

Laramadness 21 Aug, 2017 AltLd O/S Led odd pitches. Just under 5 hours climbing, not bad for one almost retired climber and one with a bad back that could barely get his boots on!
