Rockfax Description
A compact classic that crams in a large amount of testing climbing. Start at a steep slab in the narrow buttress right of the chimney of Step Across.
Make thin moves up the slab to good gear at the break below the first overhang. Move rightwards up through the overhang and continue past the upper overhang to a final easy wall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the unprotected slab and arrange gear carefully in the breaks, before making a committing move up and right through the roof. Once established above sort some more gear and tackle the final easier overhang and wall.

manbat 20/Dec/17 Lead O/S

Took a while to commit to the beginning, as I'm a wuss a going hard moves with no gear. But the climbing is ok once you get going. Turning the first roof isn't hard, but it's quite thin getting established above - this is the only 5b ish move. Easy enough from there onwards. A lot of value, and not hard for E1.

Plased gear but got nicole to atach a rope from above to speed up the inevitable rescue atempt. The rope was abit to tight to count as a lead. Got pumped on the roof so rested on the cam under the roof, plased a mini cam+bigger cam, the smaller cam riped. First slab felt hard but being atached to a rope helped the nerves.

Went up to half way once, it started raining, so backed off in to adjacent chimney (from where Neil then retrieved the gear). After rain ahd stopped, started again from the ground and re-placed everything. I felt this was a bit bold actually and definitely not HVS. The (obviously bold without pads) slab is the crux, probably 5b, but the first overhang is worth 5a and you would take a really nasty fall from there - the gear is a long way below you when rocking over.

Felt gnarly, the slab is the crux i felt as the over hang is scary but very juggy and protectable

I got well pumped trying to get over the overhang and had to be lowered down to have a rest. Bit annoyed with myself because on the second go managed to get it without any problems.

First time went right to get past the overhang. Went direct this time - definately harder, but not convinced it's 5b.
