Rockfax Description
A good route. Climb up past five bolts to a groove. At its top, don't head direct - traverse left along a break to a ledge shared with Jugs Mawr and then come back right to clip the bolt. The remainder of the route is technical but not desperate. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The bolted 'Dolerite' line to the right of 'Jugs Mawr'. Steep climbing via some great pockets and slots up to the 5th bolt where a cruxy traverse leftwards along the horizontal crack leads to better holds. Precarious / airy moves rightwards will hopefully gain the 6th clip, continue upwards with a few awkward moves past huge jugs to a lower off. Definitely a route that wants to be a limestone sport route!

SGD 29 Aug, 2015 Lead rpt Wanted to get back on this and took the opportunity today. 1st time putting the clips in. crux is definately traversing left at b5 although moving back right is the pyscho crux.

SGD 16 Aug, 2015 Lead 1 rest/fall. Got to the 5th bolt and got knackered trying to go up and looking at the moves right. Finally decided to go left and had nothing left the came off. worked it out but ended up closer to the peg on jugs of mawr than the next bolt. wussed out of the move. Once the clip was in I did the move which was really nice and climbed to the top. Having now read the actual description and comments it seems I went the right way, it just felt a bit odd. Very good route though, unusual for slate.

ksjs 26 Aug, 2012 Lead dnf Disappointing: you have to traverse into the route to the left leaving you feeling miles off-route if you haven't read the description. The bolting makes it look like doing this isn't right either and leaves you looking at an uncomfortable fall / pendulum back right. Needs another bolt to show the way, make it a bit friendlier.
