Rockfax Description
Precise, fingertip wall-climbing on superb crystalline edges builds to a final testing climax at the top of the pitch. Start just right of a left-trending broken ramp-line at the base of the face. Move up easy rock to a sloping ledge at 9m. Pull through the slim overlap above to a sidepull and continue up the wall to a resting ledge. Move slightly right and follow the steepening wall up a slight depression until a final hard sequence gains a ledge and lower-off 5m below the top of the crag. The top of the cliff can be gained via a short HVS 5a pitch. © Rockfax

1st redpoint, great experience. Evening light on the wall, great view from the top. Really lovely climbing all the way

I think I've done either this or Chiming for You in the past but no recollection which one... Should have on-sighted it but cold fingers and hard-to-find crimps got the better of me.

3 goes, should have gone on the 2nd. Cool climbing, intricate holds. No hard moves but fairly sustained on small holds after the rest ledge.

Good. One to come back for. Could have flashed if I'd given it some effort.

Just about 7b. Pleasant climbing with no real hard moves but must be desperate to onsight if it's not chalked.

Another run out to first bolt, brilliant thin climbing but again insight blown at top as couldn't find the holds fast enough in the blizzard of possiblilites.

2nd go, hard in today's drizzle. Very good route, better than its neighbour.

More sustained than Chiming for you as there is more harder climbing but no really hard bit.

Superb rock. Much more sustained than Chiming but not such a hard crux. Get yo crimp on!

AJM 09/Jun/11 Lead RP

Excellent route. Second evening session on it, first redpoint attempt after a few dogging goes. Sunset ascent, and (whilst I'm told it looked smooth) very much by the skin of my teeth! The pale yellow tat tying off the peg was placed there today.

3 goes. Tiring.

Tried once beofore a year or 2 ago. First go today after a false start. Fantastic route, better, harder and more sustained than the one to the right. Both are 7b though, dont know why Rockfax downgraded Chiming for You.
