Rockfax Description
Three exacting long pitches giving tremendous climbing.
1) 5b, 40m. Climb easily up to the roof then gain the groove. Follow this to a ledge then climb the wall above and left to a large ledge.
2) 5b, 45m. Head up easily behind the belay and get stood on the pinnacle. Follow the continuation groove above to a ledge. A wall leads to another ledge.
3) 5b, 35m. Gain a left-slanting ledge above and traverse left to the second groove. Follow this to easier ground and the top. © Rockfax

geoff b 27 Jun AltLd O/S A tad chilly in the shade but at least it was out of the stiff Easterly wind. A super route: P1 was hard to second the initial overhang with a rucksack on but P2 was definitely the crux. We finished up The Overhanging Arete & then abbed down to do the proper P3. Lovely.

The first overhang to start is tricky, and then nice and obvious and safe above. p2 has a hard crux high up, moving up the slippery corner to the fist jam (already used my blue dragon!), jam city of all sizes and quite hard. p3 is balancy earlier on then eases. Big line, luckily drought conditions otherwise it would/could have been horrendous!

Second pitch is really stiff for the grade, third pitch is absolutely stunning. By far the best, longest and most sustained solid multipitch, hard to find a MP where all pitches are of equal E1 5b quality.

Michael Bortoluzzi 4 Jun, 2018 Lead O/S Lead all 3 pitches (with a bit of gear left in on p2 after Simon backed off), more amazing climbing with some brilliant exposure in places. Bit of a crux on p1, but not too bad, p2 felt hard but yielded to some mixed tactics, including a fair bit of jamming, which might explain it, and p3 felt significantly easier though with bags of exposure (think 'Little Chamonix' on steroids - jug haul above a big drop). First proper 'Hard Rock' tick (after seconding Cenotaph the previous day)!

This route is doable if you can jam, it would be very hard if you can't. P1 was dry but would be very awkward to start if damp. P3 is in a great situation high on the buttress. Despite what RockFax say, this cliff is less than an hour's walk from the road and benightment is easily avoided.

DubyaJamesDubya 23 Mar, 2003 Lead O/S Led this route 3 times. Circa '94 (Duncan),'00 (Cedric)and '03 (Martyn). Have led all the pitches clean but struggled with the last pitch the last two times which in spite of originally being given a 5a grade seems the hardest to me. Never any trouble with the others.

BigHairyIan 19 Jun, 1989 Lead O/S It was all dry. The first pitch buldge, which I would imagine would be a nightmare if damp, was fine. I climbed up, placed to nuts and climbed down, to rest and psyc up. As it happened the rep was bigger than the route and I powered through the bulge and above. Took the easier finish, the arete looks wild!

oldmanofmow 28 Aug, 1964 2nd Found the first bit getting into the groove the hardest, after that fairly straightforward. John worried about giving me protection on both pitch 2 and 3 so we escaped up Green Caterpillar. I led the slab pitch because John reckoned I was good on crap rock and grass.
