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

Climbing didn't feel too hard. just pumpy

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.

Not a good warm up for an after work hit. Great route will go back for the clean ascent.

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!

Had cold fingers through the layback so had to run it all out, sketchy!

Sweatfest, getting dark, fluffed the crux (wire in slot rather than fingers..). Final route in the 10 rock-types -in-a-day challenge!

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!

Pumpy. Good route but not 3 stars. Not as cool as the other imo. 2 stars at most.

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!

had to sit on the rope a lot to work out the move,found it very hard compared to cream and void

ksjs 24/Jul/09 2nd dog

1 fall at crux - just didnt pull up far enough to gain pinch. like to think i would have been thinking more ahead if leading. very burly, very good and seemed tough E4

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.
