Rockfax Description
Low in the grade and excellent. Start up the shallow awkward left-trending groove in the blunt arete to the overhang. Move right and power through the flake that splits the roof then continue up and left on flat holds to the lower-off on Zombie. © Rockfax

Really good climb. Short safe 5c section threw the roof and to get established above the roof then short 5b steep crack. Fun not as good as GOD the E1 next to it. This should get 1 star and god should get 2 stars

Really really good climbing! Take care when exiting to the belay, the big rock just underneath, where the climbing ends, is loose.

Graeme Hammond 06/Jul/16 Lead G/U

SHOULD have been felt soft for E2 but having a bad night and completely burnt out and gave up above the roof 1st go. Removed gear on abseil before a 2nd attempt later. Whilst I was pleased to get up the route as the climbing is excellent I am almost more annoyed that I SHOULD have waited for another night and smashed it safely. Style not quite G/U but not RP either.

Did the crux roof easily then ran out of gas for the rest and departed on the head wall. Missed a crucial jug, easy when I got back on. Next time.

Quite a route to get my trad head back, after a few months of sport! Panicked a bit after the overlap after managing to fiddle in a few dodgy wires and running it out to the top!

A nice route with a bouldery crux and then another 10ft of hard climbing. No way is this near the difficulty of Darius!!
