Rockfax Description
Climb up to the keyhole. Arrange gear and make a tricky move to get stood in this. Head on up to a bulge and climb this direct. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
I have changed the grade given for this route, old grade votes have been deleted. The "crux" is a perfectly protected 2 hand pull on a huge hold.

Nice starting sequence. Easier but still interesting above with an airy bulge.

Rockfax description / topo are confusing. This route starts at the small slotted pocket 3m left of central crack, NOT the big keyhole with thread above 6m left of central crack (This is Robbin's nest)

May as well have soloed as I couldn't be bothered to put gear in past the off the ground "crux".

Went with Nathan for SPA practice, we only had one harness, so we rigged up a top rope, pulling the other person on an Italian hitch.

Provisional HVS 5b in the CC guide! Nice route. If using the Rockfax guide be sure to start behind the tree where you can slot a wire in to an obvious groove below a pocket, almost from ground level.
