Rockfax Description
A fantastic climb covering some impressive ground for the grade. Start at a large tree belay on the left of Lunchtime Ledge.
1) 24m. Traverse left across the smooth slab and then move left around the base of a big block overhang. Follow the corner above past a small tree to another tree and belay ledge.
2) 18m. Behind the tree is a blank looking wall. Climb this rightwards on good hidden holds to reach a big rock anchor bolt. Continue up a corner to a big overhang and pass it steeply using huge holds to easier ground and an abrupt finish. © Rockfax

Lead pitch 2

Easy 1st pitch, top of the 2nd pitch involves a bold pull up past the overhang but the holds are excellent

Linked from dawn walk. Was getting dark so we chose this as a quick route off lunchtime ledge. As enjoyable as last time.

Linked from Sinister. What a great little climb. Interesting moves in a fine position. Must be the best vdiff in the gorge.

Top is quite exciting for a VDiff, though gear is abundant and at shoulder level.

Top may have been cleaned up, seemed fine to me. Nice climb.

Red Rope last climb of season. Started with Clarian (Colin Lead) and then across lunchtime ledge and up Bobs Climb (Evan Lead) Colin, Tracey, Evan, Learnado, Me, Dafydd. Jooles had a go but backed off, as did Dave fisher. Was very wet at the time. Andrew stayed at the bottom. I was last up Clarian and, although the route was still damp, it wasn't too bad. I used my headtorch for both routes though. Felt good and confident and thought Bobs climb was superb, must have another look in the daylight! Then off to the Nova for a few pints.

Good holds all the way, with plenty of pro. If climbing as a three on one rope need to split into two pitches. Great finish.

This was down as a Severe in my guidebook, The polished slab behind the tree on pitch 2 is a bit of a mare unless your taller than 6' but a great finishing move up a slight overhang
