Rockfax Description
A tremendous climb that follows a subtle line of weakness up the smooth looking main face. The climb is both intimidating and amenable in equal measures. Start next to the house sized boulder.
Boulder up to the break (either using the crack between the boulder and the wall, or the wall just to the left of the boulder). Move along the break to a niche. Carry on leftwards up a crack until moves straight up gain good holds at the start of a shallow left leading depression. Follow this until a move up reaches a horizontal finger-crack. Move right and climb direct to a flake belay. Scramble off left. © Rockfax

One of the best pitches I've done. Incredible exposure. Not technically difficult but sustained and exposed so I think the HVS grade is justified. Otherwise it would possible by VS. Thought the gear was fine. Abseil feels sketchy as it isn't 100% clear where it starts from in the rockfax guide. Guidebook says abseil from a rounded boulder above the main cliff. I didn't see a rounded boulder and you can't see the cliff from above. Went off a mushroom shaped rock about 5m left of the first big outcrop you get to on the descent and that worked well.

Led in one pitch. Excellent.

Put too much gear in on the first pitch, run out of quick draws and had to down climb to collect some from lower on the route. Belay point doesn't have much protection (apart from a sling around the boulder). Second pitch seemed harder than the grade suggests.

Excellent route. If you don't want the excitement of the bouldery start, begin behind the huge block. Then a good idea to belay at the end of the initial traverse and complete the rest of the route in one pitch.

led p1. A better way would be to lrad to the ledge at the start of the route & then combine p1 & 2 in 1 pitch.

Fab first move onto pitch one, happy to second what followed....One to revisit and lead in 2010

Bloody Brilliant! Only drawback is the amount of traversing so I spent half my time thinking about ropework and not the climbing

Looks very unlikely from below but turned out to be plenty of small good positive holds. Awesome exposure. Pretty sustained 4c on your fingers and toes but no really dificult moves.

Superb climb, I'm glad we mustered the bottle to do it. It looked really unlikely from below but actually was really steady, good holds and gear in all the right places.

One of my all time favourites. Set off quite late in the afternoon and sneaked this one in. Suberb route. The approach down steep grassy slopes to get to the base of the route is more scary than the climbing.

Fantastic route, really big feel. And there were some "loons" living in disused buses and vans at the top. They watched us do the climb and were spaced out and scared that we might die!
