Rockfax Description
A good direct to the upper corner of Illusion. Start around 20m right of the bay with two trees at a short crack. Climb the crack and move up into the left-slanting groove that features a smooth left wall. Take the groove to join and finish as for Illusion. © Rockfax

Phil_Brock 13 Jul 2nd O/S Gets HVS in latest FRCC guide and earns it. Awkward start then a big run out on the slab - peg at the bottom of the slab not much help and a bad nut of the right then 4-5m before you get to the next ledge and gear! Relatively easy moves but you wouldn't want to come off.

John Holden 23 May 2nd dog Not my most auspicious ascent! Got a thorough spanking on this this year, having found the route technically at my limit last year, but managing to climb it without falling this time was very different. From the start i found it very difficult, pulling on the gear at the top of the crack, then falling off the overhang. The ramp proved difficult with a tight rope required most of the way up! Fell off again somewhere up here, stood on the head of the peg to make one move.....all accompanied by language to make a docker blush. The top wall needed coaching from four colleagues from the club and a serious bit of hauling from Mike H before I was able to reach the top. Thanks to all the lads for the coaching and encouragement and especially Mike for dragging me up most of the route. I dont think I will be doing Lower Falcon again.
