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

Second go, a few falls to figure out a sequence, still felt pretty hard on the send go. Bomber gear all the way, very enjoyable

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.

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.

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!
