Rockfax Description
Set apart from the main slab is this popular hairline crack. Start below the thin crack that starts at the top of a low, ground level cut-out in the slab.
Take the thin crack in its entirety to the top. Belays left and right. To descend walk along the top of the crag to the abseil point above the main section of the slab; or scramble down steep, grassy ground directly behind the belay and walk back around the base of the crag as for the approach. © Rockfax

it was so hot at the crag this day, humidity was a killer. the slab before the overlap is less smeary than last time I'm sure its getting smoother. such a tricky crux gaining the crack.

Much harder than other Culm Coast E2's of a similar style, e.g Sacre Coer/Harpoon. Fell off moving through the overlap. Loads of loose holds on the route, footholds regularly crumbled too.

Beni got a bit unstuck getting over the overlap, but was solid after that. Great climb

Rope got a bit snug at one point. Stiff moving through the overlap as the slab has no friction under the overlap.

Gabe Oliver 05/Jun/14 Lead O/S

Awesome slab crackline. Techy footwork and confidence needed on small hands.

Motown 31/Jul/13 Lead O/S

Sustained slab climbing that requires some good finger locking as well good footwork. Hard moves start as you go through the overlap. Great route.

first overlap felt very hard once into the hand cracks above tho its smooth climbing

Joel Perkin 09/Apr/13 2nd O/S

Good climb, felt very difficult, I'd say E2 despite what people say, seconded several E2's and this was the hardest of all of them. Interesting top out, and interesting belay. Worth doing.

Great climb, hardest bit for me was getting over the overlap at 15 feet - found the holds very thin here. Cam near the top was lovely. Topping out was fine.

Classic crack climb with an interesting traverse to belay at the top

Had to time the start of the climb just right as the tide caught us out. As others have said very loose and chossy top, helmets might be a good idea.

Great climbing with very good gear all the way. Excellent route. Shame the belay is of a pile of rubble.

Haydn Jones 23/Jan/11 2nd O/S

Ed put a cam in the hold I needed, resulted in me having to make a even bigger stretch than i needed to! horrendous top out and belay, if it wasn't for the top, it would be 3 stars, remember to bring a helmet for this one. :s

Sustained 5b around good gear. Think Laterally.

Regular and reassuring gear, unlike some other routes on the crag.
