Rockfax Description
10m. Spaced and small chipped holds up the shallow groove give a worrying pitch. Another VS from way back when. © Rockfax

Dropped my chalk from the top of the chipped section, which was a bit upsetting. Was so physced that forgot to read the description, and had a bit of a moment at the top of the chipped holds, slowly getting pumped with freezing fingers, before just committing and finding the good holds amongst the guano. Very enjoyable

Liked this, so did it twice. Finishing up A Climb traverse makes for a lovely solo. Watch the bird shit.

Tricky at the top right before the first bit of gear - not a place to fall from... Cool head required

Chips are better than they look from the ground but exciting bird poo finish!

not a very nice finishing move on A climb, it was the crux for me!

Tom.Priestley 06/Apr/15 Solo O/S

First move took commitment, easy after that. VS with no gear. Very positive holds.

CharlieMack 19/Mar/15 Solo O/S

Climbing is fine, but a bit dull. Slightly awkward move exiting.

Didnt read the guidebook description, turn right above the chipped holds, super exposed solo traverse followed by an even more exposed bouldery top out! Scary stuff!

Not having much luck with this route. Second ground up attempt. Felt solid all the way up the chipped ladder and got into the cave but lost focus and lobbed off before I got the obvious bit of pro off my harness. Decked out from 25ft perhaps. Compressed one of my vertebra and spent the night in hospital. No climbing at all for a indetermined period. B*lls! At least it's winter.

Lobbed off a couple of moves shy of the cave and the first placement. Sore heels and a bruised ego. Not having a good day!

I'd give the first couple of moves 5b, then 4c maximum until the moves onto the shitty ledge which must be pot luck depending on the guano situation.

Quite a shit chip-ladder route covered in shit.

With mats and with a hangover so i wasn't thinking straight. Mats not that much use higher up but pretty easy climbing on positive chips.. was a little trickier than expected getting onto the ledge because it was caked in bird poo...
