Rockfax Description
20m. A superb and bold outing up the front of the pillar. Climb the tricky but escapable rib to the roof and pull over to reach the left-trending ramp. Up this then trend right (bold) to the upper overhangs. Weave through these then finish direct. Memorable. © Rockfax

Fairly bold, would be really bold if you didn't find the gear below the roof. Good climbing and soft E2 if you find all the gear.

Nice! Felt a lot easier than expected, although wouldn't want to fall from the crux slab coz you'd deck! Lummy!

Have shyed away from leading it before. On top rope this time it felt easy so I led it. Keep your head & don't think about the run out.

Put nut high on the right before going left and spied a nut placement on right while on descent route that made the whole thing fairly well protected. Thread was insitu too!

Easy E2, if you don't mind a long run out on small pebbles and pockets with big reaches. The guide has it exactly right!

Awesome route, still beyond me as a lead, but am inspired to do so after watching someone on it. Definitely one to make the hair on your neck stand up.

Death route, E3 5b at least how can effectively unprotected pebble rock-overs at 10m only be E2 5b. HARD
