Rockfax Description
A 2-star first pitch up the right wall of the corner is high in the grade. Climb the bold lower section to a small ledge. Move up to the break then right to some cracks which are followed to the large break. Either traverse left to belay and finish up Gypsy Lane; or better, traverse right to the large ledge and abseil from threads. © Rockfax

Regardless of how good you are at fiddling in RPs the gear is poor moving up to the break. Safe after halfway though with a good runout near the top. Ace route, proper E3.

I thought the lower section was pretty bold and the upper section was pretty steep - tough E3.

Absolutely excellent route, if you can do this you can climb E4.

quality but much easier in retrospect than it seems when on it. i got good gear (4 bits) before moving up on lower wall though it still feels quite committing. the ledge isnt quite the ledge youd like it to be and gaining the upper crack took some thought though once established this is straightforward. the end is a bit cheeky with a bit of a run out, direct seemed to lead nowhere so i moved right at top of crack to finish via good small blocks and edges. v worthwhile
