30m.

Rockfax Description
Good climbing featuring a steep upper third on superb rock. Start up a shallow groove from where steady climbing leads to the final steepening. The bolts are a little spaced on the lower section. © Rockfax

βeta: The hardest and best route on Red Wall with a very pumpy top 30ft. In desperate need of a bolt before and after the first bolt though.

βeta: Possibly the best route on the wall. Slightly bold start then steep, sustained and excellant finish. Also one of the hardest on the wall, maybe 7a+.

Mat Welsh 26 Aug, 2017 Lead O/S Superb line with some hard moves on interesting rock and a very sustained three clip section when you're already getting pumped towards the end. Quality.

J1_TOV 20 Aug, 2017 Lead dog Aggrg I came to do this route and it got rained on. Greased off the last sopping wet sloper, same hold as my onsight attempt a few weeks ago. It's not so hard, just gets pumpy with the big reaches.

J1_TOV 23 Jul, 2017 Lead dog Fluffed the last move. Couldn't get any closer to the onsight (putting clips in). Wanted to save my beans for another route but one to do another time.

Wise 23 Jul, 2017 Lead O/S Some quite poor rock at the bottom but somehow it doesn't detract from the route and it flows really well. The top is where the action is though; had to dig pretty deep in the end with a desperate heel to get the jugs at the top.

mikeski 5 Jul, 2017 Lead RP Big hold came off in my hand and I took a rather large flyer. Said hold hit Rosie on the leg rather nastily. Helmets a good idea for the belayer on this wall.
