Rockfax Description
16m. A great climb, direct sustained and interesting. Climb onto the ramp then undercut and stretch up and left for distant holds. Continue in a direct line. © Rockfax

Due to green slime start and what looked like a similar finish coupled with sparce gear I abseiled line and tried moves first. Slightly disappointed I did as fairly straight forward but even with a low side runner this is nearly E3 and clearly E3/4 without. led twice as not happy with my line at the top first go (hadn't checked guide properly) as ended up on left arête so good to finish it properly. Class climbing on positive holds :)

Side runner in The Waster - way more than E2 without this. Brilliant route.

Lovely. Pad and low side runner.

With pad. Cool first moves, then nice climbing to the top. Probably feels much easier (still bold) if taller than 5' 9".

Ascent that I've waited to do for ages. Cutting loose to the stretchy holds at the start proved to be a proper 'moment' which was swiftly followed by some psyched up technical manoeuvres, leading to disco leg city whilst sorting pro. All in all, in hindsight, it was mostly steady and controlled. Excellent route!

Not quite onsight as I had previously seconded it 11 years ago. Fair to say that didn't help much! Went for the side-runner option in Waster which still left it reasonably bold and committing. E2 and a 1/2 without the side-runner? Tremendous quality, very worthwhile route.

no idea how some one would lead it as the holds are really sharp and far apart and pretty bold bottom section with no gear till 2 thirds of the way up

quite easy(I am 6 foot+). rained a bit more heavily after I did the crux, got an active wire for shits and giggles.

had gear low in 'waster', assume this is in at the grade, even with it in absolute top end, unless, of course, you are 5'11"+
