Rockfax Description
A stunning climb which follows the crackline above and right of the Sunlover start. Move right out of Sunlover then climb up to the fingery cracks which swallow wires. Hard moves lead to the break where a grovelling mantel gains the ledge on the right. Climb the easier, but still testing, wall on the left to a junction with Sunlover at the ledge. Finish as for this. Feels around F7a+. © Rockfax

found placing the gear the crux.

Fell off the ledge! Gutting having slapped my way there. Top wall is steady and has some amazing holds!

A bit gutted to fall on a route that should be my style. Moves were great but I didn't have the beans to link it today.

Hard work. Just as I was about to set off a monsterous wave came in and soaked the start of sunlover, made me chuckle! Think I stood a chance of getting it clean if I didnt have to get the gear out (which was firmly welded after kd took a few falls). Move in to the triangular slot felt like the crux to me, the findlay gurn move was fine with a bit of gumption.

The top end of E5, hard. Ollie had already placed 3 or 4 bits of kit at the start which was very handy, thanks Ol

like sport climbing placing gear, ran it out a bit going for the ledge though and almost pumped off just after hitting the ledge.

Ground up. Lowered to the ground, pulled the ropes and lead on 3rd attempt.

Pumpy! Take lots of medium wires! I'd placed all mine by about a third of the way up.

Painful holds we thought, taping up the fingers a bit made it much nicer...perhaps I'm a wuss though.

harrowing belaying experience watching Bob scratch around way above the gear - good on-sight from the Brewer waking-up from his winter hangover!
