Rockfax Description
A good strenuous pitch, well protected too. Start up the leaning flake system then pull out left on to the wall and up to a rest. Climb the flakes round the edge of the roof then continue until forced to traverse left below the shrubbery to Zombie. © Rockfax

A awesome route would been 3 star if it wasn't for the traverse finish. Pumpy but with good half rests just enough to keep you going. Surprise that the crux is high up not low down

Thought about leading this one, but decided I'd rather choose an easier first proper trad lead. Glad I made this decision!

Excellent and easily worth 2*s as per newer guide. Would bewworth 3 if it wasn't for the traverse left at the end. Good gear and holds :)

Brilliant route, no easy moves but sneaky rests in between quite distinct sections. Very pumped, loads of gear.

At the top, I went off route towards Lime St Direct, then had to reverse a couple of metres of hard moves (5c), and at the last moment during climbing down I grabbed the top quickdraw... The top runner itself was at potentially off-route and the move to just reach was tough, so my second Lee left it and I had to return and retrieve it, belayed by Lee at the belay stance. A micro epic. Brilliant route, though!

One rest about two-thirds up. Just got too pumped working out the awkward section nearer the bottom.

Found it awkward and hard work, was a warm up though, so not too bothered that I fell off it.

Nice route and line. Good moves, although some are a little awkward. Solid at the grade.

missed finger jam on crux move a couple of times, messed about a lot with bad feet positions. once sorted hold came easily. a good one for those wanting to work on bridging technique
