Rockfax Description
Fantastic technical climbing up the grey wall. Well protected with good wires and solid fixed protection. Pull powerfully around the lower bulge (bolt) to reach a thread. Move up and leftwards on tiny holds, passing a second bolt, and continue direct to a vague break and peg. Rock onto the break then tiptoe rightwards to a third bolt. Blind moves past this gain good holds and gear. Continue up easier ground to reach a shallow scoop and a final bolt, then move left above this with a long reach to the upper break (peg) and the lower-off. © Rockfax

Alex Mason 4 Jun, 2018 Lead dnf Bad idea to try this. Finger was so sore pulling past 1st bolt. Made it to alongside the 3rd bolt, at which point it felt desperate. Pretty sure it's tech 6c here.

Adam Booth 8 Jul, 2017 Lead RP The bottom took a few goes today, but the rest was a lot smoother and the top was fine 'onsight' with Ed's beta. Great route on quality rock. Super smooth ascent by Ed. Made it look 1a.

Ed Booth 8 Jul, 2017 Lead β Had belayed Ad on his effort the other day so had a lot of beta, altho I had called most of it from the floor. Went pretty well really. Thought this was a great pitch.

Adam Booth 5 Jul, 2017 Lead dnf Onsighted up to about half way then slipped off above the third bolt. Pulled back and gets a little easier after there, although it was tough putting gear in. By the time I got to the final bolt my toes were in agony, so I lowered off here. One to go back for.
