Rockfax Description
A stunning line, amazing rock and intensely thuggy climbing make this one of the most unforgettable routes around. Start beneath the crack in the corner and pull up into it (requires a shoulder-aid for shorties). Heave up to the roof, power around this then thrash up the crack above. Bridge up the finishing groove before you wilt. © Rockfax

Really nice. Hand jams just over the roof felt hard and sweaty under the glare of the sun

Ace! Start fine for shorties.

Really good and much easier than the Rockfax guidebook makes it sound. Take a big cam or hex to protect the pull off the boulders. You can sit on the ledges under the roof for a rest and the crack and corner above are friendly for the grade.

Flipping brilliant! The start was a bit wet and greasy but a big silver dragon made it safe. Above that it is excellent, the roof is steady and the crack above is amazing. I switcvhed my brain off and pulled a block off the top which smashed into my ear - woops!

Max went first and had an epic trying to get into the crack, threw his nuts away when they wouldn't fit and left a bunch hanging in the crack before lowering off, So led the beginning on his gear - really hard crack - an amazing route for anyone who isn't used to climbing cracks and trad features !

Dad took huge whipper from above the roof to 1m from ground upsidedown. Crikey!

Took a big fall off this one. Just missed the deck when two bits of gear ripped. It was only graded E3 5c at the time but felt tough at that grade.
