Rockfax Description
14m. A good route with hard but safe (if you don't mind a bit of flight time) climbing. Reverse the last section of Duke of York then use the flake to make tough moves to reach better holds. Finish up the flake and flutings above. Photo on page 327. © Rockfax

A few rushed attempts before dark. Got established on the break on my third go but (when already obscenely pumped) it started to rain, so I dropped off and cleaned it from below. will be back.

Much easier with a bit of fore-knowledge of the upper section!

Finally came back for the lead. 1 top rope to check the gear then got rained off. Annoying.

Second go, ground up. Repeated it twice more with no issues. Definitely going to come back for the lead tick when I can find the plums cause the route is every bit as good as it looks from the ground!

Really fun. Hard and safe. I was so cold I bulldosed my way through static.
