40m. A rewarding, absorbing and lengthy outing up the centre of the Back Wall to reach its highest part. Well fortified with fourteen 12mm bolt runners. The best climbing is found keeping closely to the line of the bolts all of the way to the belay.
An introductory slab and steep bulge is followed pleasantly to a mantel onto a large sloping shelf. Step across to the right and then immediately back left to gain the slab above and climb this is a large scoop. Move across to the right and climb its right edge with difficulty to easy open ground above. Continue directly up the ‘tower’ above and pull up left to gain the belay ledge and a double 12mm ring abseil station.

badgerjockey 25 May Lead O/S Pleasant enough. The length is the best bit. Quite Avonesque. A 60m rope will require some scrambling by both climber and belayer to meet.

The Ivanator 9 Oct, 2016 Lead O/S Easily the best of the three Sports lines on the back wall, some thoughtful moves and a good length. Climbed on 2 60m half ropes, brought up second and abseiled.

zimpara 4 May, 2015 2nd O/S Seconded, interesting moves around the two bulges. Generally damper than other routes in location.
