Rockfax Description
A fabulous route that follows the sweeping, wide break across the face of the fin and is topped off by a well-positioned thin crack. Start at a vague line of holds that lead up to the break.
Climb up the wall to the left-slanting break. Follow the break all the way to a broken niche and climb up the wall above via a thin crack to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A classic North Coast E1 which gives strenuous climbing along the obvious diagonal line. Take care with rope work and the increasingly loose block on the top wall.

I could not get off the ground. The boulder start was beyond me. My feet slithered on the greasy rock: I could not find anything for my feet at all. I ended up hauling myself up the ab rope while Scott winched. Once I'd got over the first two metres it was fine, although I was pretty tuckered out from hauling my sorry ass up the rope.

My second however had a real epic, managing to deck out 3 times, the final of which falls was from around 3m! fortunately he was not hurt and went on to get out safely with the aid of a rope set up above the start to attach ascender to, to stop him decking again!

Was knackered before I started, but Annie was up for the second so I had a god. Great route, very pumpy. Had a couple of rest after an initial slump when my whole set of offsets got stuck in the crack. Didn't have much gear left when I got to the final vertical section, but fashioned together some quickdraws and preselected my gear and got up fine in the end.

Classic E1, quite full value for the grade with bold start, pumpy traverse and tricky steep section past some very loose blocks....grat fun though!

Man I shat my pants on this! Totally ballsed up the start, got massively pumped and had to downclimb and before starting again. Head wasn't really in it any more and ended up resting three times during the route. Shame cos it was great!

Steep crux once you're nicely pumped. Bring lots of extenders and mid-cams. Don't be surprised by the wobbly hold near the end.
