Rockfax Description
Impressive positions and a fine line are tempered somewhat by vegetation and grass. Start at the base of the gully wall, around 10m below a massive boulder.
1) 20m. Follow easy vegetated ledges until below steeper ground.
2) 20m. Climb the right-hand side of the rib, first right and then back left to a stance and belay.
3) 13m. Continue to a grass ledge and belay.
4) 20m. Traverse right for 5m then take a (sometimes dirty) slab up left to a grass ledge and belay.
5) 20m. Ascend a short wall to a left-leading ramp. Follow the ramp to its end then go up to a vegetated ledge. Move right to a belay.
6) 12m. Finish up the wall and broken ground above. © Rockfax

BigHairyIan 14 Jun, 2014 AltLd dnf Route finding is difficult on the first two pitches. And the rock looks dirty and un-worn from below. As you make each move, clean holds come to your aid; however it takes a degree of faith to keep moving when the way forward looks improbable! We abbed off the top of pitch 3.

Puma 5 May, 2014 Lead I think wellingtons and a shovel would have been more suitable than rock shoes and wires! The climbing was never very technical but the position is fantastic. Lovely views down Dovedale. Route finding early on was tough, although this could be down to is being early season with quite a bit of moss covering the lower sections.

jimorothy 26 Jul, 2013 Lead Classic adventurer's route. Very disconcerting route-finding early on, plenty of gardening, but worth five stars for the views form the belays alone.
