Rockfax Description
12m. The centre of the face has a nice combination of long reaches and rounded holds. The apparent escape route to the right arete turns out to be a bad idea. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
E2 5b as it has always been, but a hard one. The centre of the impending wall is action-packed with several cruxes in the first half but good gear if one hunts around.

Scrittly top. Should have brushed it.

This was green. I think it's better to do it in the winter/spring before the leaves come out on the trees.

Calum Wadsworth 17/Jul/14 Lead O/S

Cracking route, sustained and well protected. Was also nice and shady on a very hot day.

A really good route. Protection pretty good. Interesting top out! E2 with hard 5b about spot on I'd say.

much better than it looks and a good struggle

Matthew Ferrier 20/Oct/12 Lead O/S

Great climb to end the day on. Found the final mantle much easier than it looked.

Up, down, up, fall, whimper then dogged my way to the top. Pathetic.

Wanted to do this since i saw the line above the boulder problem start. Had to wait a while to be good enough to do it though. Even better - Franco Cookson can't do it!!

this is turning in to an addiction now. It isn't even very hard, but i was forced to rest on gear in the top break. Going to go for the solo next time. It had rained and was green and was ridiculously humid, but that's no excuse. At lest i toped out, after getting so much rope drag I had to untie. Jack was right about the doubles.

So hot and sweaty. Crux felt easy using the undercut and then the hard bit began, slopers in warm weather! Top-out not too bad today.

Led up to the crux, but then had nothing left afeter a hard windy day's climbing.

joe larner 13/Feb/08 Lead dnf

Couldn't seem to do anything with slopey break so reversed to ground and didn't weight the gear. Good lead from Jack.

straightforward moves but pumpy and hard won gear. good 'squatting' rest eventually in final big break beneath top out. Resorted to using heather hand holds over the top.
