Rockfax Description
A testing line that features a bouldery initial wall and a contrasting final crack. Start below small flakes in the low wall.
Boulder up to, and past the flakes to a ledge. Climb left up easy-angled rock to the base of a crack and the tiny 'Africa' shaped flake on the left. Climb the crack and steeper leftward continuation to a ledge and belay. Scramble off to the left. © Rockfax

The exit is a little precarious as some large broken up boulders now sit just on the edge of the top out - remnants from the winter storms. Who knows how long they'll stay there for! Makes belaying extremely awkward. Went further back to build my belay instead of slinging the boulders, as some chaps on Double Overhang did.

the large block at the top of the final crack has gone! making the fininsh more difficult. When you get to the top the belay is a serious of sharp boulders - ie the remains of the top of the crag after most was washed away in the winter storms - scary!

Pretty overwhelming, altho with a nice move or two off the ground and a pretty rounded exit.

my first VS 5a, boulder problem at the start wasn't easy for me (I'm short!) and took nearly 10 attempts, a demonstration from a very helpful German climber, and some of his chalk...with chalk I managed it :) nice route. Falls were very slight as only ft off the ground.

Did with Stuey and Chink as last climb of the day. Tricky 5a start. Tried direct at bottom but it's all about the black knob! Chimney half way up felt tough too, not much obvious for hands.
