Rockfax Description
10m. Climb the arete until it is possible to trend right into the centre of the face. Continue up to the roof and pull round it just right of centre. © Rockfax

Really fun arete to start. Hard top out on desperate slopers!

Rob thought it was a VS, based on v poor memory. I thought the start was difficult and continued for far too long. And the top mantel move was well protected but still tough, so top marks to Mr Grafton for this gem. He didn't swear once.

Terrifying mega mantel last move. I lead Walkers Wall yesterday at Crookrise, but before committing to the final move, traversed left which is a variant finish. Just beneath the roof is a big loose block. I found this out by putting my full weight behind and when it did move a good few inches, fortunately didn't pull it out on to my belayer beneath. Hopefully, people that go to Crookrise will see this message as if that block hits someone, it's not going to be good.

Failed on the top out. Had momentum, but lost it. Tried to go again, but foot slipped off the rockover for the top. Finished as for Craven Crack.

Bit of a slip on the boulder problem start but fairly plain sailing after that. Loads of good gear to protect the pull over the roof.

Lovely route and not so hard once you work out the courage for the top rock over (and exactly where the holds are. hehe). Pretty safe for the grade.

Managed to role right off the top of this. Much more fun than topping out properly first time!

A hard-ish start leads to a simple middle section then (with faith in your belayer) the roof can be gained by finding the hidden hold before you pop off!
