Rockfax Description
16m. Originally called Ella, this ancient aid route would be a Millstone masterpiece were it shipped down there. Climb the initial overhang and follow the crack to a ledge (beware nesting birds - puke, puke). The slanting crack gives a sustained technical battle to a taxing exit. There may be a peg runner in place. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The belting crack through the headwall has a quasi-religious aura. Although Rockfax gives the grade as E4, the consensus seems to be solid E5.

James Oakes 18 Jun, 2017 Lead G/U 3rd go ground up, with in situ Fulmar, after falling once moving from right to left of crack and once falling with my hand on top of the crag. Probably E5 and in the region of f7b. Would definitely be E5 without the pegs.

Dave Warburton 31 Aug, 2016 Lead G/U Long overdue. Pleasantly awkward. Maybe should have flashed it, falling off chalking at the top was a definite disappointment...

Franco Cookson 8 Apr, 2010 Lead dnf Got to the second peg then got very tired. The move getting up to there is nails to figure out. The rest looks pumpy.

Ram MkiV 10 Jun, 2008 Lead A corker of a pitch! Onsighted to second peg but then floundered. Lowered off, pulled ropes and got it second (g.u) attempt. E4?! super safe but hard E5 for my money - F7a+ at least. Awesome crux seqeunce involving tenuous a finger jam and (for me) crucial thumb positioning! Brilliant.

Steve Crowe 21 Aug, 1995 Lead O/S Had an issue with a Fulmar near the crux! Sort of onsight but backed off my first attempt to avoid conflict with the resident bird.
