Rockfax Description
A bold and exciting climb on superb holds that requires a confident approach. Start at the toe of a ramp below the steep pocketed wall.
Climb up the ramp for a few metres and then swing up onto the wall on a good pocket and use the crack on the left, close to the arete, to move up to more good holds at mid-height. Finish steeply up the central crack-line on yet more good holds. © Rockfax

Great route, indoor wall climbers should find it easy if they're brave enough...most of the gear was a bit fiddly and dubious.

A bit nervous on the initial section. Nut in initial big hole came out. Laced the rest of it. Great fun climb. Jugs all the way.

Climbed with Steph. Fun climbing, I would say its HVS due to the lack of good gear for most of it. Though you can get a fair sling if you traverse out right a little around the middle and a good small nut a little higher than that.

Gear is pretty shocking - 2 micro wires and 2 holes! Did find a thread half way up. Good last climb of the day.

really good route to finish the day. would make a great solo, holds are all mega. i'd say HVS as the gear is sparse. can't see there being a better route at the crag.

orangejames 02/Apr/12 2nd
Matt Smith 25/Mar/12 Lead O/S

Great climb, really positive holds but gear is awkward to place and runout, especially at top hence why HVS is probably right.
