Rockfax Description
A tricky route with some fine climbing. Start on the ledge reached by abseiling down the centre of the crag, as for Stromboli. Move left across the slab to reach a thin crack below the groove formed by the end of the roof. Head up this to the groove and make a desperate sequence up to the roof (hard for the short). Sustained laybacking around this leads to an off-width through a second roof and the top just above. © Rockfax

A bit of everything. Intimidating in places but logical. A great climb with a technical start and a physical finish.

Classic with enigmatic and unusual crux involving a painful ring lock or is there another way?

Good sustained (had to fight for this one) moves all the way with good gear.

Really pleased to onsight this one... found it disconcerting not being able to see round corners/roof, and found pretty much every section hard.

Good & varied climbing, but tough for shorties.

Well protected on the techy crux, great rock for smearing on.

On of the best done to date at Tremadoc. Got wrong-footed and took semi slip on crux but held on on jammed finger, just to have another go with feet the other way round. Reachy and hard at 5c.

Wicked pitch. Tricky walked cam to get out right in the middle of crux. Fennerz way of gettim me back from Grasper's groove.
