Rockfax Description
A fine climb up the tall corner above a small cave, where the ledge below the cliff drops down. Climb the corner then move back left and make a grovelling pull onto a ledge (possible belay). Move up and right into the higher corner and climb this to the top. © Rockfax

Hard for HVS. Sure that the strong and insecure pull left must be 5b. A really good route the whole way.

Felt like a VS 4c to me but maybe that was because I'd just been traumatised by seconding Riders on the Storm and excited this to be as awkward! Moving off second ledge fine once I decided to go more right.

Found this to be way harder than Army Dreamers. I took the right-hand wide brown chimney start as per Rockfax topo - some interesting bridging moves required. Getting onto the second ledge was superbly difficult (maybe I missed a hold or just chose a dodgy sequence?) and committing. Traversing right required some thought and commitment. Once established into the final groove began to enjoy myself again :D The top-out was brilliant as I found it way easier than it looked.

with Barry

Found it pretty hard for an HVS. Alternates between thuggy and technical and never really gives respite. At least the finish is easier than it looks.

with Jon
ChristinaAllen 30/Apr/16 2nd O/S

Great route but I was pumped after the crack at the start although I can't remember whether I rested on the rope (there were ledges so maybe not - I'll go with Not). The CC guide goes up the face rather than the crack but the Rockfax version was probably more fun.

Cracking climb, although 2 different opinions about where the route starts, rockfax says up the dirty groove, CC says on the nice rock to the left..... we chose nice rock to the left. Tricky section getting onto the block from the slopey rock, but move onto the face after that is just fantastic. Seconded my hubby on it, hope to lead it another time.

Well named! Strenuous, although not that technically difficult. A really excellent route which would probably warrant three stars at most crags. Started up the lower, right hand groove, as marked in the topo in the Rockfax guide. This seems a perfectly logical start as it's a) about HVS 5a, and b) quite good.

Where does this route go, the rockfax guide suggests it takes the wide brown crack whereas on here and in the climbers club guide it says to take the shallow groove, i took the brown crack because it looked a bit harder and i didn't want to be soft. Scary as hell though.

Went up the left (pink groove), also went right at the roof, due to incompetence and old guide book - however, still felt right at the grade.
