Rockfax Description
A route of two halves; superb crack and face climbing followed by a stiff pull through the roof. Follow the right-hand crack in the flat wall via some good edges until you can make a good move up and right to a crack. Follow this line to a ledge. The wall above has a spooky feel, and starts by taking the thin crack above the ledge. Once committed to the wall, step left to the base of a slender groove and then move back slightly right past a letter box to gain a junction with Sickle at the roof. Arrange gear here and move up and left to a weakness. Now make a stiff pull to an undercut flake. Layback up the right-hand side of the flake to gain easier ground and eventually a spike belay. Abseil descent, or continue up Sickle. © Rockfax

In Scarpa trainers because I forgot my stickies. Slab and undercuts on roof were tough! Found myself using jams because they felt secure when i couldn't trust my feet.

Should have realised that the crux was partially wet with all the runoff, just about managed to hang on with wet fingers and holds, the starting cracking was also slightly damp! Felt harder than 5b though, but that might have been the conditions.

One restnear the top as missed good hold for pull through the roof Bottom slab actually harder and more sustained than top section - felt it merited a higher technical grade than Sickle

charley 20/Mar/16 Lead O/S

Well more of a ground-up. Did the first couple of moves, got the first nut in but had a full head and body shutdown, couldn't commit. Knackered after a long weekend. Took the gear out with the intention of packing up and leaving however had a word with myself at the bottom and got back on it. Soon relaxed into it and really enjoyed it. Brilliant route, great moves, bomber gear and luckily some good rests.

Misha 07/Jun/15 Lead O/S

Excellent route with a fantastic exposed position on the top bulge, where was the photographer? Tired after a full weekend of climbing and there is a lot of 5b on this so felt challenging but never desperate and there's always a good hold or rest coming up and the gear is good. Took the final bulge direct which Andy said was meant to be 6a - I thought 5c would be fair and it's only a couple of hard moves.

Awesome route 3 sections of 5b seperated by 2 good rests, its all their and their is enough gear - the flake after the overlap sounds reet hollow though! thoroughly recommended
