Rockfax Description
A super-technical testpiece starting from the top of the ramp and moving left onto the wall (or, harder still, starting from below). Using the crack and pockets on the face you quickly reach a stopper move - there are several methods, but only one usually works. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Originally started from the ledge on Isometric chimney. (Can be started from the floor, traversing right into the same start). Move up the slanting crack and make a long reach off a toejam to a half-decent hold above. Finish slightly more easily.

Ticklists: Tonbridge School Sandstone Graded List, Starred Southern Sandstone 6a's.

Finally managed crux - right f smearing next to the crack (no jamming) and left f pushing on decent hold - but need precision with f placement! Hard move!

Def better starting with the traverse in from left rather than from the ramp.

I watched a guy spend an hour climbing this today... and his solution to the crux was a deadpoint??? after trying several other possible ideas I finally committed to the deadpoint and it worked!!!! this climb is an absolute technical joy especially if you start it from the ground.

could not make the 'long reach' with the toe jam at top of crack... unsure why 5.10 is not that small! Unforgiving climb. I must have missed something so I will be back

took me a couple of hours till I was happy with my ascent, excellent move to pivot on toes into crack and also balance to reach over to iron stone. Enjoyed this.
