Rockfax Description
Pumpy climbing on good rock and gear. Start below a corner 5m right of Brant. Make a tricky move up and right from the base of the corner to reach the spike on the right arete. Follow the arete to gain the crack above the first small roof and follow this and the confusing wall to a semi-rest under the small roof at 16m. Gird your loins and tackle the roof (crux) and steep crack above. Speed is your friend as the pump builds. A final tricky move at the top of the crack leads to easier ground and the belay. © Rockfax

Still pumpy above, and was quite tired by the last move before the jugs. Great route. Bit friable in the break. Tiring and not easy, but safe!

Owen Davies 31 Mar Lead O/S climbed well up to and through the roof sequence - karate kick used to great effect. However had a bit of a head block on the upper crack as I couldn't commit to my sequence first time. Didn't get that pumped though as I managed to find a rest on almost every other hold! Tough move on undercut. Commit to sequences first time Owen you wet flannel.

Mike505 20 Oct, 2018 Lead O/S Some guy was at the bottom and picked up on my uncertainty about the route and proceeded to talk me through each move, did most of it differently (including completely lank the crux but considering who did the FA id say that's how it's meant to be done) so going to take the onsight, I did mistakenly climb the Arête rather than the groove to start though, great line! Holds and gear where you need them and the top wasn't as bad as I was expecting, take plenty of medium nuts!

steveb2006 18 May, 2010 Lead dnf My big attempt - with a dry mouth I set off and make steady progress up to and passed the overhang. Confidence begins to creep back, but the upper crack is unrelenting - go for it, running it out to save strength. Close to the top strength dwindles to 0 and I plummet off. Catch my foot on the slight slab above the roof, stopping below the roof. My left calf really hurts - seems I may have torn a muscle. Lower down and a guy who has led Quasar gets my gear. Hobble down and back to Ynnes - end of climbing for a while.
