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.

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!

Lead it on (more or Less) Alex's gear with his beta. Good route, shame its not a bit more continuous- although i doubt id have said that whilst on the lead!

Greased off the enormous jugs at the top twice. I blame it on post-rain grit and being a hopeless punter.

Great fun route, but really only one hard move so a nice easy tick for grade (but who is complaining!?)

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.
