7m. A boulder move gains the first break at V2 5C. Move past the big break (no. 4 camalot plus cheeky knee bar rest) before more gear on the arete. The top is wickedly sloping and harder than it looks - moving slightly left is the key! Pumpy symbol needed!

Tried on lead at first and got up as far as the final few moves to the top, but couldn't commit to finish. Progressively harder with a typical moorland granite finish. Found final moves hard on top rope as still had to rest. Grrrr 5c.

Failed to lead - cold windy, out of the sun and feeling weak! Pete rested a few times but did it - good effort - i still wouldn't have wanted to lead. Met Ben Hall who was bouldering. Nice evening - but wrong venue - should have been at Chudleigh in the sun!

Great start, very much a bouldering problem. If you can get your hand in the right place on the first break it sticks nicely. From there it's not too hard until about 2/3rds up where I kept coming unstuck. Short ascent, but a great problem. Difficulty is definitely in the top third of the climb, look forward to returning and improving.

After leading my project earlier this year ( la bête noire) I am on the hunt for a new one, had this in mind after playing on it a couple of years ago! Forgot how tricky it was!! Difficult all the way up crux at the start but it does not let up, slopey and delicate foot work make for a definite 5c, more practice required!

Great start but the slopers were not my friends at the top so needed to rest

JoeCoxson 24/Feb/16 Lead dog

Had to take a bloody rest after spending too long finding the least sloper-ish sloper on the top move. More energy sapping than it looks.

The top out is without a doubt the crux.

adam84 08/Sep/15 TR

Great little climb, technical start, slopers all the way up, good footwork required, top out is classic Dartmoor round and slopey, reach for the pinch and its game over

Bit of a sloper sandbag. I was the first to go up, climbed up to the main break with some difficulty then shoved in two of the largest cams which despite being huge were still pretty open when situated in the really wide break. It took me some time to get them placed in a position that I was happy with by which time I was pumped to no end. Went one or two moves higher and realised I was way too boxed so decided to come down and hand the lead over to rob who can hang off holds especially slopers for considerably longer than me.

Much easier today, after doing it 2 weeks ago. Knee bar and moving slightly left of arete at top are the key!

andy_pemberton ?/May/12 Lead

Hugely pumpy route for me! Knee bar rest in big break helps, as does moving slightly left for the top slopey reeeaaacchhy move. It took me 3 downclimbs to finally make the top!
