Rockfax Description
This route follows the crack in the wall down which you abseil. The steep (crux) bulge lower down rewards you with increasingly positive holds higher up. Excellent! © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The obvious south facing crack. Well protected.

Andy Moles 13 Aug Lead Fun. Steep start a bit of savage warmup. The upper 'impasse' is not much of an impasse.

Misha 9 Jul, 2017 2nd O/S Good line but really tough start on jams and sidepulls, wouldn't argue with E4 5c or may be I was just climbing badly... the tricky moves at the top required some thought as well.

James Oswald 14 Sep, 2016 Lead G/U Really good route. The start is steep and physical. After lots of going up and down at the start my foot slipped about 6m up and I fell off. Tough.

jsmcfarland ?Aug, 2016 2nd dog Naaaaails hard! Fantastic lead by Robert. Steep, slippery crack climbing, what a nightmare. Will come back for this in a few years when I'm a bit better!

Sardien 13 May, 2012 TR dog Awesome climbing. Had to prusic up first 8m cause I clipped in wrong end of the rope to the in situ gear to guide the rope, which left me dangling of a zigzag, unable to reach the start of the climb nor get up it whilst on belay. With 40ft spray from below and howling wind this all added spice to the quick climb we intended. 3 Stars day out!

zero six ?Mar, 2012 Lead β Can't be properly onsight if you look at the holds on the way down, even if it was a year ago. Greasy and slimey on the first 8 metres made for a proper battle.
