Rockfax Description
12m. The crack starts from a sentry box and gives good climbing to a naughty finish up the widening and undercut crack. It is possible to avoid the last few moves by traversing the break leftwards to give a one star HS 4b. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Steady climbing to the last ledge to where a thrutch up the final crack awaits. A lot of parties move off sideways here at 4b. Large cam useful for that last crux section.

Pre 1957, possibly the E.Y.M.C.

The Top out is a bit of a monster, jamming with your right hand and going up using the face left of the crack for footholds felt like it would be 5c, jamming with your left hand felt more like hard 4c or 5a. For someone with little jamming experience this was a rather harrowing experience with a massive cam, would have been horrific without. A 3 star experience of fist jamming!

cant claim clean as a small tumble on the final top out, but I'm not calling it a dog! god it was hard though. took numerous attempts and (mostly) downclimbs to work out the sequence that worked for me. Then once got final bomber fist jam and hand on break had to hang there to recover sufficient strength to finish and pull up - and anothe minute to recover suffiecient breath to call 'safe'.;-D

With one peice of gear preplaced due to my partner attempting it before. Spent ages (about 90 min) on this route most of which was spent sitting on the ledge getting gear and psyching myself up for the crux! Tried the crux twice and almost fell off! Then wasn't motivated anymore and went off to the left! :( :( :( :( :(

Bailed ignominiously right as I'd already used the only hex that would protect the top crack.

Sharp grit at the very base, then some squeezy thrutching at the top. Good fun.
