Rockfax Description
The first half of this climb gives some good sustained climbing. Step out of the groove of Strap-Up at its first roof. Make an awkward move around the arete and then climb the sustained crack above. From here move right to the arete and take the most stable line up the tower above. Unfortunately the gear on the upper tower tends to be behind the dodgy blocks you are pulling on. © Rockfax

Great climbing but little dusty and no chalk marks, good onsight lead by Karin. Gets E5 in the new guide.

Felt scary at E4, first trad route in ages and it felt it! In my opinion not one of the better routes that I've done in the leap but very worthwhile.

A bit too spicy for E4 especially with the old threads (need replacing). The knee bar rest on the arete is fun but a bit too distracting. The top section is manageable. Superb pitch.

Brilliant route, absorbing climbing with amazing position on the arete after the traverse, great knee bar..i think the new guide's about right having it at E5 although soft, felt a bit to involved for E4...

Brilliant and underrated route, one of the few on the East Wall that is as good as anything on the West.
