Rockfax Description
One of the best single-pitch climbs on this section of the cliff, high in the grade. Start below a thin crack-line just right of the low recess at the base of Simian.
Make some hard, technical starting moves up the thin crack and continue to an overhang. Move left to below a steep corner and climb this to an interesting exit rightwards on some amazingly high friction rock. Take the long narrow corner more easily to the top. © Rockfax

First route at the gorge in about 12 years. Climbed about 8-10m before finding the first decent placement, didn't fancy another run out on the glassy limestone so downclimbed and ran away. Not my style at all!

Best route I've done so far in Avon and one of the best VSs I've done in the South West. Bottom section seemed quite easy but nicely technical and interesting. Found the moves up the corner hard and quite reachy and the upper groove was straight-forward but certainly a bit harder than it looked from the ground.

Fell off the initial 5a crack, foot slipped of a shiny hold. Reminded me why I dont climb in this end of the Sea Walls!

Slippy start, but hardly 5a. Simian next door is supposedly the same technical grade, but there's no comparison whatsoever.

Go right at the crux onto the arete for much grippier rock

2nd VS, quite scary near the bottom! Needed a size 2 1/2 nut, without one it felt rather deckable.

Good route, not sure I could lead through the crux at the overhang yet, need a better head for it. Did not top out but elected to ab off from the 4 bolts about 20m up the route.
