45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The big central groove provides a welcome relief from the sustained hard boldness around it.
1) 5b, 35m. Climb up into the groove and follow it to the break. Lean around the roof and reach a bucket. Heave around the lip and continue up the loose-looking (but solid) wall to a ledge.
2) 4c, 10m. Climb the crack/groove just right of the corner. © Rockfax

Hard at the end of the day. Lead P2. Lower section felt unsatisfying then the roof looks huge! Made full use of in situ sling and powered up to a jug (extra move for a short leader?).

Unhappy about how smooth the Rock was, and found the move over the roof stiff.

Loose at the top.

tim newton 21/Aug/14 Lead O/S

In one pitch. The top felt pretty dangerous, do other people go up the crack 2m right of the main obvious corner? Not recommended anyway. The last 6 metres are up some very dubious blocks and holds. I was really distributing my weight in full on Red Wall/Carn Gowla mode. A pretty big bit of rock I was standing on still fell off, fortunately my hands were decent and it didn't land near Rachel. Sketchy, that finish felt like E3,5a.

P1, on Alex's gear to roof at which point it helps to be tall.

Wet first pitch and dirty second. Failed leading first pitch, couldn't reach jug over roof from beneath and pumped out pulling up on undercut jam and crimps. Managed to second after a rest though and lead last pitch.

Brilliant. The roof looks about E5 from below.

catblack 17/Aug/11 Lead O/S

Loved it, going through the roof was incredible as i had no idea where the holds were and it was a good stretch to find them. Not technically difficult just intimidating. Thread could do with replacing or removing.
