35m. Climbs through the bulging black wall with interest and difficulty to gain an immaculate slab above which will be thoroughly enjoyed by slab lovers (and will probably spit you off if you don't!) Once an abandoned project now a well bolted sport route with 16 bolts and a lower off. 70 metre ropes required to lower off, alternatively belay at the top and walk off. Start to the right of the Shouting Stage E5 6a.

I loved this route! I think I went the wrong way near the top, left hand on the arete for every move - ace sequence.

Had to work very, very hard not to drop this, poor Jenn was close to hypothermia by the time I figured out the slab.

This was a cracking long lead, finishing in some stiff moves up the slab at the top: it took me a while to work out exactly where I needed to go.

The top slab isn't too bad, but there's an odd section at about half height without anything positive. The drag is bad on the top section, no complaints about the route, but putting a bolt belay on the big ledge before the top slab might reduce this issue without really affecting the grade.

Failed at the crux, put little effort into finishing it

Fantastic route. I enjoyed this sooo much!!

Absolutely fantastic route and well worth a trip to seek out! Very tricky to work out - spent a long time on my toes trying to work out the sequences on the final slab especially, although the bottom section was very technical - don't expect to pull on anything for most of the climb. Well bolted but clipping on the slab up high felt precarious when trying to haul the weight of the rope up balancing on tiny edges!

Probably warrants 7a just about. Great fun climbing.

wolf.leeb 27/Sep/13 Lead O/S

V.good.. 6c+ seems fair perhaps 7a for short?

Feet slipped on one of the easier parts of the slab due to lack of concentration. Hands stayed on but rope just came taut, not sure if it made any difference to me staying on or not. Onlookers gave me the redpoint so I'll take it.

Best route of the crag. Probably more like 6c+ but maybe 7a due to its length? It is possible to lower-off with a 60m rope as you can access a ledge a couple of metres up, untie, then scramble down easy terrain. However, be careful, and remember to tie a knot in the belayer's end of the rope.

Delightful upper slab, decent rambling below. Not 3 stars but good.
