Rockfax Description
A butch exercise. Start below a recess 3m above the ground with a borehole strike at its back
Move up to the borehole, and then climb the right-hand wall to an easing below a steep crack and undercut wall, some good gear here. Make big moves to jugs over the lip and haul up to a resting place. Climb more easily to a bolt and then head right to finish up the cleanest line. © Rockfax

RSabin 1 Jun Lead dnf The route required very long moves -or better technique- from the very start. The undercut and adjacent crack provided very good gear protection to attempt the crux several times from different possitions. Despite my best efforts I couldn´t reach the supposedly good holds at the top. Eventually after Alvaro also tried and failed we decided to go up Daydream to absail down and recover the gear.

foobar123 15 Sep, 2018 Lead O/S A route we tried a few years ago and since then has had a bit of a reputation! Nowhere near as hard as I remember it, but that's what two years more experience does to you. Hardest part for me was getting established on the right side of the crack underneath the roof: there's a small, unobvious hold that's very crucial but once found it was fine. Didn't know where to go at the top so went left onto some grassy ledges.

Darrell Read 14 Jul, 2016 Lead dnf After hanging around a lot eventually got in to a position to reach up on top but couldn't find a good enough hold to commit to the move. Too tired to attempt down climb so jumped off, unfortunately caught the rope with the back of my leg getting a bit of rope burn. Retrieved gear by climbing the VS (second ascent) and then abseiling off a ring above. Plenty of gear in the crack below, think I had four pieces quite close together (size 0.5 friend and size 5 rock were particularly useful).

Placed good gear beneath the crux; a wire in the crack above (size 2 BD Stopper) and a hex well-seated in the groove to the left (size 6 WC Rockcentric). Moving up to the crux I had a failure of strength and couldn't hold on or pull myself over. At least the gear held nice and solid. One day...

Stanners 22 May, 2011 Lead O/S Great route. Once you reach the big undercut and crack you can get bomber gear in. You can actually enjoy the crux, knowing you have a good chance of living if you fall. Recommend getting wires in the crack and then down climbing to the slopy ledge to de-pump. Polish really isnt as bad as comments have said!

ashley_sandeman ?Mar, 2011 2nd dnf The Norfolk Machine eventually powered his way up this with much puffing and cursing only for me to dog the second. Having removed enough protection to stop even a falling elephant I set about working out the crux. Should have paid more attention to TNM's efforts, but was distracted by a falling walkie talkie just missing me from an instructor on an abseil course to my left. Basically on my tenth attempt I found the whopping jug on the left of the overhang just where the rope was hiding it, having slipped and slided my way on it for the past twenty minutes trying to lay back it. Piece of advice: don't bother trying to layback it. Find the jug instead. Finally gave in with forearms looking like a bouncy castle. To be repeated.

I just committed myself deeper, then had to traverse onto the VS to the right. The rope drag was too great by then, so had to abb of a small tree. This route would have been great once, but it's had its day. Every hold is like glass. It's just not fun, don't bother.
