Rockfax Description
16m. Climb the wall and crack to the stacked overhangs and pull strenuously through these to reach easy (and broken) ground. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Thin crack, then the block overhang. Strenuous!

N.B. Block has now been dislodged as per recent postings on UKC and grade may have changed -

Route is very dirty and had to rest just below the overhang

Nice moves just a shame its so short. HORRIBLE top out!

Block is definitely mobile and was also the last runner:( Topout is terrifying because the climb doesn’t really end, the rock just turns into soil!

Got to the overhang and got too pumped, looked fine from the ground (as they all do in my head), will have another go when I'm more fresh.

Got half way up and realised I was too knackered and hungover to finish!

got onto the crux but didt trust the overhung slab atal, so bailed it.

n.b. 30.6.09 the block in the overhang is DEFINITELY LOOSE, and very mobile. APPROACH WITH EXTREME CAUTION. I don't plan to climb this again until it goes.
