Rockfax Description
A good pitch up the shallow groove cleaving the cleanest piece of rock here. Climb the groove then traverse left and pull through the roof to gain the soaring shallow corner. This gives interesting and sustained climbing with good gear throughout. © Rockfax

George_Surf 18 Jul, 2017 Lead O/S A bit harder/bolder than I'd imagined it would be? Pretty slippery climbing all the way up. The first crux corner is well protected on red and silver dragon but it's got a few very thin moves. Next corner is still awkward and the only thing I got was a red offset not seated very well

ksjs 24 May, 2012 Lead RP V poor effort, sneaked left into this after giving up on Scone Run (which didn't feel so 'well-protected' when trying to gain upper part of crack). Point of aid to place gear in upper part of the crux corner on this - did not fancy hitting ledge a few days before heading on a sport trip. Generally felt tired, with head elsewhere, sore feet and not up for making an effort today. Superb rock, great route and will be back to do this and Scone Run...

masa-alpin 25 Jul, 2009 Lead O/S The crux blank corner was technical and balancy particularly with a rucksack (I agree with 5c), but safe and most enjoyable. I thought another 5c followed in the next section, but maybe that is only me, as my second did not have any trouble there.

Pixie-Andy 25 Jul, 2009 2nd dog I thought the grade of 5b/c was about right, until i got to the crux where i felt it was more like 6b. But i did have a ruck sack on. The route would suit people who are light in weight and height does not help at the crux. My partner felt the grade was about right.
