Rockfax Description
When the upper slabs are clear of moss this is a worthwhile pitch. Start on the left side of the face next to a deep chimney that is formed by a massive flake that leans against the tor.
Move up cracks in the wall left of the chimney to a spike and continue up cracks until a pull up the wall above can be made and a ledge on the left gained. Move up through a bulge and climb carefully up the mossy slab to the top. Do not attempt this section in damp conditions. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
To the left of the wide chimney head up cracks (spike runner), then continue up further cracks until you can pull left onto a ledge. Take care to arrange gear here as above the bulge the very mossy slab is largely unprotected and not for the feint hearted! Be careful and avoid altogether when wet.

Did not lead top mossy slab. Needs serious brushing off

Pleasant lead. Well protected and interesting moves on low section. Mossy top but very easy climbing.

A great start and middle, just a shame about the awful, mossy, shitty excuse for a slab at the top. Ended up waiting for a rope to be thrown down rather than climb on. Bitterly cold wind didn't help.

Warm up, reminded me how you need to treat the holds and gear on Dartmoor granite, although Alkis seemed to hate the climbing and the moss I thought the route had interesting character.

Ok route, but slab at top needs some gardening. It deserves more assents - bring a stiff yard broom.

Pretty green on the top slab, but not too much to get in the way on a dry day, nice run out ending was exciting!

Very dificult for its grade and not much fun once it got a bit wet. Once you had dug away at the moss you could find ok hand holds. Leader had a huge run out finish.

Good lead from Ben. The sketchy bit on the top slab is not too far up and there's gear just at the start. Still a bold finish on dirty ground. Bring a brush!

Lead the first half of the climb up the break. Cleaned lots of moss off on the way up. Then didn't fancy completing the committing move to the obvious flake, so let Shaun do that. Found it mossy, but it has very interesting moves on it. All in all very enjoyable and a decent and varied route!

Great start but horribly run out on the top. Don't do it when it is damp - it's very green on the top.

I enjoyed the start **, but the top slab was very mossy at the time - making it a bit of a death route, a bit of a shame.
