20m. Fine climbing up the face to the right of the crack. Approach from the right and climb the face then layback powerfully up the thin crack to reach juggy romping on the upper wall. © Rockfax

What a belter! Up there with the E2s at Cratcliffe. Dusty top out but steady climbing throughout and good gear. Badly needs a stake for the belay.

Boom! One of the best E2s I've done on grit! I would say it's surprisingly steep but when you're stood under it that's quite apparent, looks from the ground like you will get a couple of rests but it's actually pretty sustained. I just had the beans for the job had to run it out at the top a bit or I may have pumped out, could have done without the slopey top out while completely boxed, one final kick in the teeth! Also seconded Matts lead on a bit of a shit belay really could do with a stake, or is there one that I missed?

Really dissapointed in myself,went for the onsight. But made the mistake of hanging around placing gear to long and got pumped. took a wipper from about 2 meters above the top break that you can get a cam in. All in all and amazing climb with a great feel about it. Bomber gear give it a go.

Ground up after failing about 5 or 6 years previously. Almost floated through the crux second half wondering how the hell it was ever possible for me to make such a meal of it before.

Silly flash pump, fiddling with wrong gear. A fight but worth it. Sustained 5b.
