Rockfax Description
The ramp-line just right of the main slab offers some very pleasant climbing on compact rock. Start beneath the left-leaning open groove line at a small tree.
Move up rightwards to a hollow block then move up and traverse left to better holds and gear. Continue up the line to a steep finish on positive holds. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A really good route,run out at the start and well protected higher up.Climb up to a block (good gear) make hard moves left and up to the obvious fault line and gear(small wires)Follow the flake left until the rock steepens and then finish up this on small positive holds.

Great route, good but small gear, eg 3 rock 1's + some fiddly to make bomber, but ok to stand around + get right. Some medium / larger gear too. Good climbing all the way. Beared slightly left at very top.

Brilliant climb on amazing limestone

charley 20/Oct/12 TR O/S

On the shunt... The rope wasn't setup in the correct place which made the first half (including the crux) feel rather dodgy and very much like a solo. Would of been much happy leading this. Nice route though...
