Rockfax Description
All the strenuous climbing that you would expect on Geireagle seems to have been transferred to this one. Very pumpy! Start as for Geireagle, but step up onto the rising line to gain the higher crack. Climb this, past a triangular niche, to join and finish up Geireagle. © Rockfax

geoff b 14 Apr Lead G/U It was too cold to try this today really, but try I did. It took four attempts to get my fingers warm enough to work out the moves into the niche. Then I pulled the ropes down & got it next go: phew! Next time I'll wait for a warmer day.

George_Surf 7 Apr Lead O/S First trad route of 2019! Got mega pumped; safe climbing up the crack on small/medium wires and cams. Found it hard getting in to the niche using the lock (crux), very nearly off it. Mediocre rest then a few juggy moves to a turn around sit down rest on the geireagle ledge. Phew! Steep finish, to the top in one. It’s either good hands bad feet, or locked off undercuts. I was boxed

rachelpearce01 7 Apr 2nd Pumpy! Looked like a slab from the bottom! No really tricky moves but felt a 6c sport route at least!

shed_hed 21 May, 2017 Lead O/S Felt surprisingly steady on this! Hand holds were better than i was expecting and fairly decent footholds - was sustained but no stopper moves with decent gear all the way.

will9911 11 Jun, 2016 Lead O/S Pumpy :) hard move to the niche especially if you can't fit your fingers In the pocket. At least you can rest on the slopers a little bit. Found joining the e3 the scary bit!

Duncan Campbell 13 Mar, 2013 Lead dog Fook! Fell getting into the niche first time up, then lowered to geireagle ramp (hands off rest) and tried to sort of ground-up it out. Got into the niche and up to having hands on geireagle's ledge but it is not piss to get onto it, fell again, got back to my gear and did to the top. Gutted I didn't get it clean but not bad for 3rd trad route of the year. Hard E4 despite having probably only 12 metres of E4 climbing!

Glyn 25 Apr, 2011 Lead dog Nails! The 6a crux (entering the pod) is hard to read and very strenuous, comes after quite a few 5b/5c moves. Leaving the pod also involves a couple of hard moves. Haven't been so pumped for quite a while!

mattyork2 13 Jun, 2009 Lead dog 2 sits. Not sure if I would have pulled it off if had just tried to pull through but had poor sequence for crux and got intimidated and took a sit which led to another. Still found the top shared with Geireagle hard and pumpy.
