Rockfax Description
A fine line and stout at the grade, with good climbing when dry and a nightmare when damp, as it usually is. Climb the groove throughout (care with loose blocks) passing a tree then the crucial bulge (bristling with old rotten pegs) towards the top. © Rockfax

βeta: did this route today...it was thoroughly dry after all the hot weather, and spot on at a good HVS. there's no need to rely on the pegs, the lower one can be backed up, and there are good friend placements once you've made a move or two up. get on it now whilst it's dry!

Martin Hore 30 Jun, 2018 Lead rpt Did this on the driest day of 2018 so far. Repeated from 1990's. A good climb then but way too vegetated now - a real adventure! No stars. Needs a thorough clean and regular ascents which it won't get. Took the crux bulge on the left. - obvious flake crack and steep pulls on jugs - not direct by the pegs. No longer the crux which is ascending the vegetated sections.
