Rockfax Description
Well-named and a good deal harder an undertaking than Outward Bound. The gear is good, but strenuous to place.
Move up to the overhang, pull through and get established on the wall above with difficulty. Climb direct for 3m before trending right and then back left to finish as for Outward Bound. © Rockfax

Laurence Mitchell 8 Jul, 2019 Lead G/U Mega route! Crazy start on good holds but pretty strengthy, the rest of it felt interesting but not too challenging. Was an idiot and gave myself a huge amount of rope drag through the initial roof, which made the rest of the route a bit of a squat-fest.

chrisweight 22 Jun, 2019 2nd RP Three attempts at getting through the crux on lead, finally figured it out, too pooped to pull through though. Fat git. Duly dispatched Chris to get it done, which he did, seconded clean, should be fine next go for the lead. Great crux section!

Pete then did Raven gully (in one of my boots as he had brought two left boots) and I followed in trainers and rested before having a second attempt - this time the flyer was avoided! :-) Good route, strenny crux then some lovely climbing above before rain arrived...

omaskrey 4 Nov, 2017 2nd dnf In truth I barely started... i'll blame it on the rope drag pulling me off underneath the crux but mostly it was the hangover. Joe had a good time at it too and needed a fair bit of encouragement to get through the hard climbing. It looked reasonably pleasant above. Hope to come back to do it agains sometime.

Euan Todd 13 Aug, 2017 Lead G/U Second go. First try got almost through the crux, but got pulled too far right and missed the crucial hold. Second try got horizontal on the undercut, then up to the good holds, with a knee bar/drag to cheat my way to the upper flake. Such a quality route. The upper slab is easier, but with one or two thought-provoking 5a moves. Solid E1 5c.
