Rockfax Description
The best E1 at Dinbren. A difficult start gains the huge juggy flake. Place some good wires then move right into the corner and bridge up this with a testing move to reach the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
An irresistable line with a devious start to gain the corner via a flake on the left. Typically mis-described in the Rockfax guide - the crux is precariously getting into the corner, the easy finish is about VS.

Claiming the onsight as I last did it 8 years ago. Felt quite tough but it was the last route of the day and I was tired.

Bold start, sensitive move across, don't forget the right gear like I did! Easy finish

One route too many after being up for over 20 hours with little sleep and lots of driving. Usually, would have left it for another day. Had a mare - first got lost and ended up left on the next route ( don't ask ). I made it into the corner next go but totally pumped and fell off. Got it on my last attempt. Nice route but need to come back and do it in better style.

Felt pretty bold during the traverse and getting established into the corner. Cruisey from there!

First flaky handhold, below the hard move, has now disintegrated, presumably due to someone lobbing on to a wire behind it. Doesn't make the moves harder, but may mean less chance of a runner.

Hard start, nut popped when I fell off, thanks to Matt catching me I didn't deck out!

Good swing from the corner on a bit of gear in the flake after feet unexpectedly slipped off. Gritstone friction it ain't! Nice route though.
