Rockfax Description
12m. The right arete of the upper wall gives a fine pitch which is low in the grade - for the strong. Climb straight through the lower roofs to a cramped rest, then head slightly rightwards, linking mostly good holds, by powerful climbing and long reaches. There is enough gear for those who can hang on and place it. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Safe roof climbing with one reasonable reach and lots of good gear. Fun.

βeta: This is E4 6a in the Northumberland definitive guide. Think it's a bit of a typo that Rockfax/UKC says its low in the grade for E3 - it is safe as houses but not a soft E3, and definitely not 5c unless you're very lanky.

JBO 1 Jun Lead O/S I don't have a huge span so was quite pleased to get this onsight, felt like a very committing move. Gets E4 6a in the proper county guidebook.

salix 13 Aug, 2017 Lead O/S A bit grovelly and the flake felt 6 inches beyond the limit of my reach till i latched it. I suspect how hard this feels depends a lot on the length of your arms!

allmag 29 May, 1992 Lead Another 'go-for-it' route - I recall getting a finger lock behind a greasy,sloping flake over the overhang, going for it, and feeling my fingers slowly sliding out of the greasy flake, I moved fast!! It's given E4 in the latest guide: no way! E3 or even E2 5c, it's a one move wonder.
