Rockfax Description
16m. Worthwhile, with pleasant open climbing, protection is a bit lacking. Start on the right and follow holds up and left to ledges. Move back right and finish up passing a useful flake. © Rockfax

Tied into one rope after reading the guidebook description about there being no gear. I then managed to find gear allover the place and generate some pretty shocking rope drag

Quite a lot of midges when the wind dropped. Quite humid on the day as well. So the rock didn't dry quickly after rain but it was fine 4 weeks earlier.

Much easier than most of the VD's I climbed here. Start seemed fine, then a big runout on easy climbing until some fun, well protected jug pulling at the top.

Tried to lead it, but could not get foot up high enough for crucial start. Could not do it with the top-rope either. Legs are too short. Eventually, Andy p gave me a push up to get started.

In light rain. Hard start (as per guidebook), probably 4b-ish and unprotected. After that, about VDiff with just about enough gear.

Somebody has said this route is impossible to start where the guidebook says. I did it, and didn't think it was too bad. My seconder couldn't and had a harder time after coming in from the corner on the right. Later we saw a young lad second the route I took even though he couldn't reach the ledge.

I think I did the bottom half a bit harder than required, having my feet in the hand holds for a delicate step across. The easier way is to step down and left after gaining wall.

Impossible to start this where the guide book says. Start in the corner and step left across the blank wall then step down. Finish up the last flake with style and flair. No holds in the intial part!
