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

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 08/Jul/17 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.

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.

Has anyone apart from Lee done this? Massive reach/jump by the 2nd bolt/rock scar. Has something fallen off here?

Slipped off the crux above the second bolt, really frustrating as it was only because I got the sequence wrong, and it got much easier after that.
