Rockfax Description
A fine companion to First Blood but quite a bit harder with a beefy start thrown in. Start beneath a small projecting rock tongue below the horizontal break band. Climb up to the tongue then psyche up and pull leftwards, eventually arriving on a small ledge above the bulge. Climb up some cracks above, over a bulge, into an open groove. Follow this to a ledge then finish up the corner above. © Rockfax

Well good. The start was greasy and unsurprisingly committing. I couldn't down climb at all once I started. Above is easier but excellent sustained crimpy face work. Littlejohn does it again!

Class route! never too desperate but interesting all the way. Maybe the start is the hardest bit

Fell off like a punter just below the jug/ledge. Might have been slightly distracted by the seaking helicopter, but thats just an excuse. Rather disappointed with myself.

Great route, good gear and interesting climbing throughout

I had to work hard for this one. Committing start (nearly fluffed it down there), tricky crux high up and a long layback to glory!

Found the start physical but very straightforward with obvious gear. The face climbing above is superb and open.

Committing at start and fairly sustained beyond. Quality.

Was climbing well on this until I headed up left too early and got stuck with a hard move. pumped out for 20mins trying to figure the moves. Then got back on line anyway. Description should read 'from the slanting jug in the middle of the wall head up slightly right on small, positive holds, then back left along the incipient ramp to gain the groove to the top'.
