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

alice fuller ?Jul 2nd In one pitch. Clipped in to get a cam out. Hard to read with some goey moves off small footholds - but good friction. It is steep, a long way .

JackM92 9 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S This is an absolute sandbag. It’s brilliant though. Was harder than November and not far off the first pitch of Great Wall...was pretty tired at the end of the day but it’s still hard. IMO just the wrong grade.

TwofoZeus 1 Jul, 2018 2nd dog Was slipping out of the crux on P2 whilst trying to figure out a static way of doing it. Came off, figured out the sequence and threw for the jug on second attempt (wide bridging feet helped), bam done! Mega route with really good moves throughout and good rests when needed, loved it.

Michael Bortoluzzi 1 Jul, 2018 2nd dog Had to sit and fight with a jammed cam. My fault, should've looked closer before yanking it out. No way near the crux either. Got the rest ok, but felt hard.
