KRB 4 Aug, 2014 Lead O/S Done in a pure direct line up to the overhang giving some very good climbing. A sharp pull past the peg and all is done.

bpmclimb 4 Apr, 2014 Lead rpt By a very direct line to the notch, starting as for Elrond and then climbing straight up between that route and The Naked Rambler, without using holds or gear on either route. Good climbing, with a reachy 5b move to leave Elrond, and another 5b move on crimps higher up to reach the handrail. The peg just above the roof has been replaced and inspires more confidence, although it's still a good idea to place an extended cam/hex at the back of the roof. E2 5c, and high in the technical grade.

bpmclimb 14 Mar, 2014 2nd β I guess most have been climbing the obvious line (part of The Naked Rambler) just right of the highest point of the flake, and then using the rising traverse on the upper slab to reach the notch in the roof. However, for the route to be more balanced and sustained at the grade, a line up the slab between the neighbouring VS routes should probably be established - even if this results in an E3. More investigation will be done soon!

James Smith 26 Aug, 2012 Lead O/S really good little climb. though the peg that protects the crux is less than encouraging! worth a star in my book.
