Rockfax Description
10m. From the top of the flake on the right, teeter round the corner and gain the shallow hanging groove with difficulty. Continue up the centre of the buttress taking the easiest line. © Rockfax

Would like to go back and solo... if I get a wee bit more confident on grit!

Great moves left on the pockets to gain the diagonal rail and rock up to gear and easier climbing. Rich unlocked the sequence and led first. I led after a few falls on starting moves. This seemed mega hard for 5c perhaps a combo with the direct? but teetering round higher up didn't appeal due to the landing.

Felt hard for E1 given the lack of good gear and hard moves. Great route though.

Amazing, the moves flow perfectly. Much better as a solo, and the rest of it after the hard bit is really easy, severe or similar. One of myfavourite experiences, at a deserted crookrise, in the autumn sun, wahoo!!

2nd attempt, ground up (with some handy beta from a friendly local climber). Nice moves, flows really well when you get the sequence.

Mattyk 21/Aug/11 Lead RP

Well. I fell off the start a couple of times - really pleased with this straight forward after the beginning.

Followed the description rather than the topo and probably traversed onto the face a bit high (off the very top of the flake). Felt fairly uninteresting except for the almost total lack of protection.
