Rockfax Description
14m. An easier route at last. Once a 'solid Northumbrian HVS', now upgraded. Follow the flake to its end and access the ledge on the right for a breather. Drop down off this then get pumping rightwards before you run out of steam - good gear but hard work. Finish up or down Angle Corner. © Rockfax

Had a stupid take half way through the crux, should have just kept going to the good feet! Pumpy and well-protected fun. Finished up the corner for extra rope drag points.

Balls balls balls I got pumped out before I found the amazing rest for my feet just half a metre away.

vaguely pumpy. plenty of gear small to medium cams. worth placing gear as soom as the traverse is begun to protect the 2nd

Last route of the day and nothing left. Pumped off on the last move. Punter.

with Patch
The Big Sender 03/Aug/12 Lead dnf

utterly spanked, no small cams so only gear was at the top of the starting crack.... massive swing, narrowly avoiding the ground!

Gets HVS in the old guide I was using. Desprate for that grade. Pumpy, but awesome climbing, wish I'd have used the heal hook rather than dangling by one arm off that ledge with no gear in yet. 3 star route though!

Got so pumped hanging around placing gear, got one move away from the good holds at the end. Should have just gone for it.

Took a full height to ground whipper on this! Didnt have my wheatabix and just not fit enough to hang around placing gear!

Weird fun route, pumpy good gear and loads of heel hocking. The move establishing on the traverse felt very intimidating.

took ages to get out of the pod thing.felt weird until established in the crack, straightforward from there on.

Quite 'pumpy'and awkward in places; helps if you like jamming (I do). Well protected with cams these days, in 1988 I only had hex's but they sufficed. It's no way E1, especially with cams! Solid HVS 5b though it was 'only' VS 5a in the 1979 guide!

Steve Crowe 08/Feb/87 Lead O/S

Super classic. Very pumpy, I had to second myself!
