Rockfax Description
A popular route which is often found hard by people who climb it too directly. Start just left of the detached flake on the ledge. Climb up to the bulge then pull round virtually on the arete to gain the finger-traverse which leads back right. Move up and back left to gain the delightful finishing slab. © Rockfax

Climbed with Graham from CCCC. First E2, very hard fought for. Couldn't seem to find the right nut size (was missing a nut size) and was pumping out so down climbed 4m or so to a ok rest before climbing to top. Climbing was probably very good but was focusing more on not falling.

A route I have been waiting for. And it never disappointed. I am only just braking e1 so I will take E2 on the logbook all day long. But I have to say I found loads of good gear all the way up. Pumpy start and traverse with good gear . Then on your feet to the break and more bomber runners. Then a lovely few delicate moves. Easy e2 and Hard 5b to good gear and the top. I have to give 3 stars cause I felt on top of the world. Awesome line.

Polished which when hot makes it quite tough. Probably is E2 although I find it hard to see how this is 5c? no particularly hard moves and the climbing felt fairly steady. Takes a brilliantly winding line up the obvious upper slab features and on fairly reasonable holds.

Wet and greasy through lower steep part, nearly fell off.. good banter with a nice amount of abuse coming from mates chilling ontop! haha

Stiff warm up to the weekend but difficulties seemed very shortlived, overall providing good moves on solid holds. The rockfax E1 5b grade seemed more accurate to me? Had a great days climbing from this start
