Rockfax Description
The shallow groove has a fierce polished start, though protection is perfect. The rest of the route is pleasant ambling, though there is a bit of loose rock towards the top. © Rockfax

No kidding about the fierce start! 13 metres of HS preceded by 2 metres of well protected but polished E1. Pleasant enough but should probably lose a star for being so unbalanced.

Dogged the first moves as the start is intense due to super polished! After that, great gear and positive hands and feet. Finished the route feeling like I'd been in a car crash!

Way Polished

Milne 15/Feb/09 Lead β

took 5 or 6 attempts to start, including having crucial holds dried for me by mark evans, whole route wet and slippy, not enjoyed, probably nice in the dry.

tebs 03/Aug/08 Lead O/S

First 5 meters is quite tough for vs, but not too serious, rest of the climb is easy 4b, bit of loose stuff at the top.
