UKC

55m. Spectacular 55-metre route on technical tufas. The second half is unmissable. Second pitch gets 7c+ in the newest guide.

Hardest onsight by miles. Amazing pitch but pure pain. The 7b tufa section nearly got me by a route reading error had to work seriously hard to correct it. The upper portion of the pitch was full body pump. Grovelling for an inches progress resting and repeating. Crazy offwidth style I've never lead feet first and had knees above my head. Especially 40+m up

First 7c flash! (For sure not 7c+). Scrapped through the hard bit on L1 but loved it from there! L2 is ridiculously good, chicken wings and the lot for me! Woohoo!

Just brilliant! Unique, creative sport climbing. A bit ungradable though, not 7c+!

put 7c+ of effort in, but its no more than 7b+.

Simply outrageous. The second pitch is an upgradeable thrutch! Probably my finest lead.

Don't feel L2 adds much to the grade, but adds loads to the quality. Excellent!

Found a headjam useful near the top. A unique sport climb.

Great fun, but definitely not more than 7c

Teappleby 12/Mar/17 Lead O/S

55m of fun. The top pitch probably doesn't have any moves harder than the bottom pitch but it just keeps coming at you! Had done the bottom pitch a couple of days earlier so not a true onsight, but the chains is a near hands off rest so not sure it makes much difference. Anyway, best pitch of the trip. And cheers crew for all the encouragement / laughing as I got noisier as I inched up the top 20m!

Amazing tufa pipe thrutching, bridging & laybacking. Class.

What a journey!! Hardest moves felt like they were on P1, but P2 just kept coming. Up there with the best...

Now graded 7c rightly. Stupendous 50m pitch. Wear a long sleeve shirt and expect a grazed right shoulder

Amazing! Yosemite 5.10 might be a more accurate grade though! No hands rests all the way up but by the top I wanted a no legs rest, calves were very pumped - just got to keep moving.

Chicken wings and bridging make it a hands off rest all the way up - I've done harder HVS on gritstone.

Mike Owen 21/Apr/14 Lead O/S

Great climbing on the second pitch, which is no harder than the 1st pitch really (which is nails!). Probably easy 7c.

Superb first pitch leads into a stunning second pitch of bridging, lay backing, chimneying, thrutching...
