Rockfax Description
A great direct version to Scorpio, sharing its middle section. P2 is long, so take a large rack. Hard for the grade.
1) 4b, 20m. As for Scorpio but move right to a stance below the wall.
2) 5c, 45m. Climb a thin crack to reach the groove of Scorpio (possible belay). Follow Scorpio to a peg, then take the crack on the left to an overlap. A long move round this leads to another easier crack, follow this to the top. © Rockfax

P1, Joe did the rest and took the belay as we were a bit short on draws. Great route, belay not recommended...

Lead p1 then set off on p2, got to the overlap, tried the move a few time but couldn't pull through it. Took the fall and tried a few more times but dwindling strength meant that I decided to retreat.

Fell off stupidly when my foot slipped on some wet rock when downclimbing low down on the route... Then got back on the route and almost fell off on the crux when very very pumped... Luckily managed to hold it together and get through to the jugs. Amazing but very sustained route, lots of hard moves!

Led the 4b approach pitch of Scorpio, then James led to the top in one big pitch. Amazing climbing, but really sustained. No easy moves anywhere!
