Rockfax Description
A great route, with tricky route finding on the main pitch, and an appalling belay, which can be avoided by linking the second and third pitches. Start at the top of a rocky gully, by a spike belay.
1) 5a, 34m. Move left to a right-facing groove and climb this to a ledge. Up and right is a left-facing groove, between you and this feature is some exciting but ultimately easy ground. Move through the weirdness and follow the groove, which leads right to a ledge.
2) 5b, 30m. Head up and slightly left, into the sandy chimney fault-line. Follow this to just below a peg, where the way forward looks impossible. Traverse left here, for about 4m, until you can make a move up into another chimney, follow this to a shallow depression and a host of ironmongery and make a poor but memorable belay on these stubs and some cams in what appears to be dust, or carry on up P3 to the top.
3) 5a, 20m. Continue up the chimney line, passing numerous spikes and dodgy rock, to the top. © Rockfax

mark4344 28 Sep, 2018 AltLd O/S Led pitch 1, steady enough. Glad to second pitches 2+3,which Graham ran together. Steep 5b climbing on holds you can't really trust and poor gear,which would probably rip out,due to soft nature of rock. Overall a serious climb.

Andy Stewart2 15 Sep, 2018 AltLd From the ledge at the top of the short right facing corner (start of pitch 1), don't go straight on up the quartzy vein like we did, even if it does look attractive (Red Haze- not the best warm up.). Never found the traverse on pitch 2, but followed the obvious line to a step left at a steep block with a welcome spike runner just below the crap belay. Awesome pitch- no pushover at the grade! Although it pains me to admit...If only we'd had the Rockfax description!

Andrew Sloan 25 Aug, 2016 AltLd O/S This route has been on my tick list for many years and given the disparate logbook comments I was curious about the impending experience............and I have to say I thought it was fantastic! The abseil down to the start was totally intimidating. I loved the weird delicate rock and found the climbing technically absorbing. I am not a bold climber but thought the protection was plentiful and adequate. Well worth the long wait to tick it.

natetan 7 Aug, 2016 Lead O/S Did it in one pitch from top of stance/ledge thing on a half rope. The good gear, mostly threads, is pretty spaced (maybe put in 6 or 7 pieces) and the rock is sandy and delicate - care needs to be taken. An interesting experience - I enjoyed carefully moving through the rock trying not to weight anything in particular.

shed_hed 4 Aug, 2016 AltLd O/S P1. How this is given 3 stars is beyond me. It's a vertical sandcastle with thin, snappy, sand filled flakes and holds sticking out of it that you climb up. The protection is scarce and the rock around the pro would probably crumble if you did fall, which could happen at anytime and feels like it is completely out of your control. The climbing was OK at best but terrifying on lead. If this cliff was anywhere else in the UK it would be declared a choss fest and wouldn't have any routes on it.

Andy Clarke 12 Sep, 2014 AltLd O/S A grand day out. Done as less scary alternative after running away from first sight of Mousetrap. Pretty nerve-jangling on first encountering the talc & ginger biscuits of P1, but gear improves & line unfolds logically as you get higher. Dale ran P2&3 together because of fears about belay, but actually there's reasonable gear to back up the pegs. Led p1.

Misha 26 Sep, 2010 AltLd O/S Great route on the weirdest rock I've ever climbed on. Thought it had a harder crux than Wendigo but was less sustained - in fact it's an easy jugfest for most of the way, just don't fall off! I led P1 and Phil led P2 and P3 together, missing out the dodgy belay, which looked like it wouldn't support a fly: only one of the pegs looked just about ok, though there are back up threads available higher up, if you trust them. Spent forever waiting for this route as the team in front was very slow (we abbed in from the side and didn't see that they had abbed in directly just before us).
