Rockfax Description
Brilliant; one the crag's strongest lines. Low in the grade. Climbing with your hands in the break provides the best protection, feet in the break is less strenuous and much more scary! Climb up to the square pocket, then follow the rising break all the way to Left Edge, and finish up this. © Rockfax

Found this much more committing than expected and more strenuous. Some considerate leading from Henry made the bold middle section bearable.

Great Route. Sustained and pumpy climbing until the break, which arrives just when you want it. Afterwards becomes relatively easy. technically not above 5a moves, however potential for big swings if you fall, even on second. Well worth it.

What a route! Really struggled to find good quality protection on the early stages when treating it as a hand traverse, getting pretty knackered in the process. Then opted for the feet-in-break option which felt technically very easy indeed and still had just about adequate protection.

Great E1, technicle to start off with but the holds gt bigger as you go along, very little food placements so in parts spearing is paramount. In total, a great climb.

Long and with fairly spaced gear, but really nice climbing! Started with hands in crack with nice big ledges for feet every so often, then put feet in crack and edged along the last half. Easy climbing with plenty of rests but big fall potential.
