Rockfax Description
The fine finger-crack leads to ledges then step out right and climb the slab. The wall to the right provides a f5+ start. © Rockfax

Not recommended. Don't be fooled by the fact that the starting crack is good (and not easy, neither). After that. it deteriorates fast, in particular the heather-grabbing, dirt-smearing haul off the slab (which is surprisingly dirty, thin and poorly protected). Not worth a 'Star' of anyone's money.

Found this tough, especially the slab - felt more like 5a moves.

Previously soloed the crack to an escape into the groove. Very difficlut to see the VS line on the upper slab. Decided on a more leftwards variation using the arete of the groove and eneded up escaping into it halfway up.

Excellent moves but the route is a little marred by the lack of a clear finish once you have rocked onto the slab. I crossed over Campion Groove to climb the arete on the far left, which seems in keeping with VS 4c.

bold on the top slab. Head wasn't in it so put a sling around the tree by the ledge before committing. Even with that it felt a bit spicy closer to the top (maybe we were too far right?)...

Felt hard. I didn't use the arete of the ramp in the left in the upper wall at all.

Tough in the top half of the bottom crack (too narrow for my fingers). One of the harder things I did today
