Rockfax Description
Steep and varied climbing with good protection. Start at the base of a clean, narrow corner. Climb the narrow corner to the overhang and layback steeply up rightwards to good holds. Follow a finger-crack left to its end and step onto a ledge on the right. Move up and left to the bottom of a final corner that leads to the top. © Rockfax

Pirate Porkins 4 May 2nd dog I got a bit pumped part way up and had already started going through the crux moves, wasn't realistic I'd make the moves at that point so rested on the ropes. Gave it another go and made the moves. A tough crux, once you got into the layback it was fine. . Climb is quite hairy with lichen which was disconcerting at times. Didn't feel I climbed that well on this route, been three weeks since previous climbing. I definitely slithered onto the mantleshelves. Feel that this prob should be a HVS 5a as well, like Rosebud.
