Rockfax Description
A superbly-positioned climb taking the line of least resistance up the wall. Start up a short crack to reach a line of good but slightly rickety holds, move left, then rock up with conviction to stand on a good ledge. Step right to a thin crack and follow this to a peg. Make a long pull past this to reach the top. © Rockfax

Awesome route, the crux is hard! I jumped the first time and missed!

Stanners 20/Aug/15 Lead O/S

Superb. End is only really hard because the clipped peg obstructs the hold a bit!

Peg for aid. Bit desperate for the vertically challenged. 6a at least

Psyched to get this OS! Solid gear all the way up. The rockover was great fun - fairly easy. Followed by steady moves and a great technical crux to reach the top. 3*.

It's only E2 if you can clip the peg before committing to the crux. (I couldn't quite get it from the ledge, but could rock up a little to clip it then come down again before going for it.) Great sequence and overall a really good route.

Did it as a clean onsight lead a few years ago but far too tired & lacking in motivation this time round

A good route, but too cruxy for three stars.

lrandall 06/Apr/11 Lead O/S

Brilliant climbing, well worth three stars despite its relatively short length. A spicy feeling rockover low down and clipping the peg whilst mid-crux make for quality entertainment.
