Rockfax Description
26m. The long groove in the back left-hand corner of the bay leads, with sustained interest, to a huge rock blocking the way. Good holds and a swift mantel lead to easier ground. © Rockfax

ChrisH89 18 Jul, 2016 Lead O/S In need of a good clean! Waded through ferns to get to it, and lots of holds were vegetated. Despite that it's a lovely climb in a slightly masochistic way with interesting moves all the way up the chimney. Well protected and the move over the chockstone is a joy (despite my wondering from below whether I was supposed be squeezing through the tiny gap!). Chockstone also makes an incredible runner for the crux if slung...

stukent 25 Aug, 2009 Lead dnf Was doing fine on this climb until I managed to put too much pressure on my right arm during a move and dislocated my shoulder. Luckily some guys had just finished Main Wall who lowered my a rope to be lowered on, they were also Doctors so popped my shoulder back in too.

andyhutch77 7 Mar, 2009 Lead Really difficult to see where to go at the top. I was thinking all the way up, it can't be over that bolder, the chimney gets smaller and smaller towards the top. Very green but non the less an excellent classic climb, a must do.

Sam Judson 6 Jun, 2007 Lead O/S Wow, what a route. Overshadowed by its more famous neighbour (Main Wall) but certainly worthy of at least two of its three stars :) The overhanging block at the top is imposing to say the least - a very exposed move.
