Rockfax Description
This route is most frequently used as a high tide start for Lucky Strike however it is a good pitch in its own right. From the ledge, traverse rightwards along good holds to the beginning of the rising flake line of Lucky Strike. Climb straight up the wall and crack above to the top. © Rockfax

As nice as I remember but I'd forgotten the tough finish. Hardest part was setting up the abseil though!

Unbelievable flake at the top. Looks as though it should be very loose and yet I yarded on it for jokes and it didn't seem to move at all.

Really nice route on superb rock but with a well protected sting in the tail.

Not sure how this doesn't get 3*?! Felt pretty straightforward but maybe i missed the crux at the top by going right. Really good line and satisfying climbing in an exciting position

Great finale to the day, one that had been on my list for long. Intimidating but ultimately quite amenable with good gear. Definitely E2 for exposure and sustainedness and the hard move right at the end, as per CC Guide.

Easy for E2, and not as good (or hard!) as lucky strike due to looser rock and not as strong a line. Worth doing though...

When I did this in 1996 flakes were braking of the holds if it is clean now then it would be OK route harder that lucky and not as much gear
