Rockfax Description
12m. Fine climbing up the slab and flying arete - it manages to feel bolder than it really is. Pull over the overlap and pad up the slab to ledges. A short crack (last runners) and pocketed face leads to a sprint up the final arete. © Rockfax

Lovely route quite low in the grade.

Paul led this. Scary lower section, although not hard. If the ground fall wasn't so horrible, this would be E1/5b. Very very low in the grade, but lovely to climb.

Curiously 3 star despite being a micro 2 move wonder with ankle breaking start and escape options at half height. So good.

Simply brilliant! Bold to start and exposed to finish. Never difficult though.

Faith in pebbles at the bottom... and awesome moves at the top. Although my second did remove the pebble I stood on later!!

Backed off the start before but cruised it like it wasn't even there this time. Mind you, I did have me wife spotting me the first time and she's not known for her effectiveness in that particular department. The top half didn't even feel Severe!

I loved this route! It felt hard due to my short stature but was great. It felt SO good to get the first break and some gear, and then the delicate moves from the crack to the top were just amazing! I have just read the route description here. I didn't use the arete at the top, only the little pockets. I should imagine the arete is easier!
