Rockfax Description
A well regarded and varied line. Start as for Dedication Direct until it is possible to move right to an overhung groove and a junction with Plagiarism. Technical moves out across and up the left wall gain a groove above the left end of the overhang. Climb the groove to the top. © Rockfax

Horton 7 Aug, 2018 2nd β Really fun on second. Technical wall moves in great positions. Great lead from Shane - not sure I'd have held my s**t together on lead

islandlynx 7 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S A lovely climb with lots of nice moves particularly from the roof onwards. The route reading low down is not completely obvious but I would say all the slight variations are fairly similar. The moves at the top are sustained and great fun. My favorite lake district route to date. Top end e2. First peg is poor but other gear around and second peg is to high for this route, it would create to much rope drag but again there is other gear. Went right at the very top to Belay from the abseil tree

fuzzysheep01 5 May, 2018 Lead O/S Pretty wet where it mattered, which made for a bit of a fight. Wouldn't bother with the knackered peg if I were you - much better gear nearby. Top end of the grade for sure, but a belter.

JendeHoxar 5 Nov, 2016 Lead O/S Very very cold, and lots of the route wet - conditions not ideal but enjoyed it anyway and can see it would be a super route at a warmer drier time of year!
