Rockfax Description
A technical and bold first pitch gives access to the well-positioned upper flake-crack.
1) 4b, 15m. Start at the foot of the arete. Climb initially just on the right of the arete, switching back left after a couple of metres to reach a ledge and thin crack (this point can be gained more easily from the gully on the left). Arrange small wires then balance up the remaining arete to gain a large ledge and belay.
2) 4b, 20m. Climb the groove above the belay to a ledge. Make a steep move to gain a delightful slab/rib. Climb this to a grassy ledge below the final slab. Either climb straight up to the base of the leaning flake/crack and climb this to an exciting finish, or take the slabby arete on the right as for Mr Ranger and traverse left to belay off the tree. © Rockfax

Emily's first vs but some rather nasty wasps got in the way at the belay for the second pitches. Beware massive nest ! She escaped with 6 stings, I managed to none!

Emily_vau 13/Jul/17 Lead

First VS lead the first pitch and had to ab off due too getting stung by 6 wasps! There was a wasps nest on the ab line next to the belay! Have to go back and try again.

George_Surf 13/Jul/17 Solo rpt

To lead coach Emily up it (on a jumar/grigri). p1 fine but as emily was about to start p2 the line i was trailing disturbed the wasps nest hidden in the hawthorn near the belay. Quickly bailed out but emily was stung 6 times! beware, its right on the abseil line (climbing the route should be fine)

1st pitch still wet from the morning rain but the lovely 2nd leaning flake/crack pitch was drier and was pure vertical joy (small nut in lower section of the crystal filled crack and small cam in the 2nd section). Good abseil station with new tat and mallion (worth moving the joining knot below the two cracks at the ab before the last person descends in order to avoid the ropes jamming when they're pulled down).

P2, almost no gear throughout but really fun climbing - aret, crack and flake. Didn't chance the Layback on lead so climbed the face direct which ended up harder! No gear after the start of flake, reminder to buy small cams

Don't think we did the VS!- Is there a Severe alternative? On Lead Course with Gareth from Dringo Adventures. I led first pitch- a very arboreal route! Quite proud of a nice threaded hex! Anne led second (crux) pitch- I really enjoyed seconding the layback at the top.
