Rockfax Description
Some fine rock and a stunning setting, although the climbing is bold to start with. There has been a small rockfall but the line has been reclimbed since. Start at the far west limit of Flake Ledge (as for Damson). Gain the ledge at 3m and move up and left to a good horizontal crack. Pull up and left boldly to good, well-weathered holds, and continue leftwards more easily on good rock with better protection to a final short wall and the top. Stake belays above and to the right. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description

Backed off on lead then followed Phil. Move past break at 3m felt desperate!

Didn't find the holds higher up on the traverse, wondered why it was 'exciting'...

Knelt on ledge and crept along; but told after there were holds above i could have used; good gear: small nut and 2.5 cam just before going up the wall.

Safe at the grade. Nice route, but too short, really.

Very enjoyable

Nice, never 4c though and probably not VS. Bit stiffer than the S 4a it gets in the CC SW Select guide though, HS 4b seems about right. Adequate gear despite the bold description in the 2012 Rockfax (who give it VS 4b).
