Rockfax Description
Magnificent climbing up the left-hand edge of the red streak with a tricky finish over the top roof. This is easier to the left (old bolt) but direct is better, and harder - 6c? © Rockfax

Gutted to blow the onsight at the last moves through the roof. Easier to step left into the groove but went for the direct finish which felt about 6c. Pretty desperate and sharp at the top.

Did this a couple of years ago and had an epic going left from the last bolt having decided not to try the direct (gnarly & unpleasant!). You actually have to climb back down after clipping the bolt before you can go left - which was the hardest bit of the route. Spoils it and despite superb climbing up to there have only given it 2* as a result.

Made a hash of this one. Attempted to onsight, wimped out then lowered off from about a third of the way. Seconding graham, still not much better and dogged my way disgracefully to the top.

Did the 6c+ finish over the roof a real stiff finish on bubbly rock after an amazing journey on big holds up the orange wall. Wonderful!

Had to fight for this in the sun.... after attempting the 6c+ variant by mistake. Awesome route.

Stellar Line! Beautiful Red Limestone, really long perfect wall at the grade. Hit me as the route of the crag from the road. Climbed up to the last metre onsight, perfect climbing.. then the rock changes and gets really sharp and hard to read after the roof just before the anchor. Became baffled and weighted the rope, then finished it unhappily in poor style.
