Rockfax Description
A superb wall climb up the centre of the face. Move leftwards along a thin crack-line (peg) and then direct (thread) to a line of holds that lead out left below an overlap and then back right above it to meet a crack. Finish up the crack or to its left. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Superb 3 star wall climbing in a grand position. Mostly steady but the section past the peg requires some focus. Climb the thin crack then crank up the gain a ramp and thread above. Trend left on good holds, then right above the overlap, then left again to finish. Top pitch only, accessed by abseil.

Scott Quinn 7 Oct, 2018 2nd O/S Top pitch only - In full winter conditions, shouldn't have left my axes at home..... Brilliant climbing very sustained one of those routes that's just perfect rivals the likes of Tumble but its steeper & harder with spicy opening moves ***

sparkass 17 Apr, 2017 Lead O/S I love Falcon Crag - another smashing route. 1st pitch is easy but chossy. 2nd pitch is harder and is harrowingly loose in places. 3rd pitch is mega. Well worth doing in full.

JM 7 Aug, 2014 Lead β Abseiled into the top pitch and saw the holds and brushed away a few cobwebs so definitely not an onsight. Really nice wall climbing in an amazing position high above the lake and Borrowdale.
