Rockfax Description
A good route with a difficult to protect lower section that feels hard for E4. Start just left of Slape Direct and pull left onto a crozzly ledge and a poor tiny cam in an overlap. Step left to the arete and make a desperate pull to reach the undercut flake. This move is extremely hard for the short. If you gain the flake, layback furiously up and left on good holds. At the top of the flake, move right and easier climbing soon arrives. Continue to the turret belay. © Rockfax

Tried with george last week after a day on cloggy. Flopped off pulling into the crack. Scary, blind cams protect the crux. Very hard E4. F7a

Climbed clean to the start of the crack, then dogged. The first half of the crack is nails. There is a small gorse bush which obstructs the handholds crucial to gaining the slab above - bring secateurs!

nearly onsighted this five years ago. Took several falls this time trying to unlock the crux.
