Rockfax Description
The last of the trio takes a line up the wall directly below the overhang. Climb up to the right-hand of the two left-facing grooves, move up slightly rightwards then trend back left to a split in the overhang. Heave over this and finish up the crack. © Rockfax

No gear over the overhang makes this route quite exciting. You should not fall off there though.

Really nice! Shame it was raining, would of been an excellent lead

Mist blowing in, slimy, glistening wall made this feel very sketchy below the roof. Roof was wet and had to wait for parties on the e1 to pass because of lose blocks (could have been nasty) But can see that this would be great in good conditions.

A block over the roof with well worn gear placement behind came off without very much encouragement. Take great care on this and surrounding routes. Great climbing though.

Great route.

with Richard Lade
masa-alpin 06/Oct/13 Lead O/S

A bit damp. The rock here was like a glass... Super slippery! And the damp rocks suck chalk instantaneously. Although there were enough pros, I was properly scared, not knowing how much trust I can give to the friction, as well as to the gear put in super-slippery cracks... Psychological climb, and in that sense this is definitely for leading. E2 for the head.

This was hard work for me, even seconding. The section on the wall was technical and crimpy, then the moves pulling over the overlap was strenuous.

Good moves, but I was glad they didn't feel hard as it was nice and greasy and I didn't have anywhere near enough chalk. Felt like I could have pinged off holds on the slab several times!
