Rockfax Description
14m. A popular eliminate that is a bit of a soft touch, but varied and superb. Climb a thin crack to the end of the initial crack on Z Climb, then continue rightwards into Central Climb. Follow this until it is possible to pull on to the wall on the right where a shallow flake/groove leads to great finishing holds. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Left of Central Climb, climb to the top of the jam crack on 'Z Climb', using a thin crack and a black flake, follow the crack that slants up into 'Central Climb' for a couple of metres. Near the top step right to a thin flake in a groove and follow this to the top.

Really pleased, felt fine, well protected and no particular crux. was quite steep which goes against my usual preferred style.. A long awaited attempt and happy to come out succesful.

Nice route, low in the grade (by Almscliff standards!) but has some technical moves low down. Shame top is so escapeable as it's the best bit. Most seem to go up the polished HVS instead...

Cleanly led after a dogged lead. Various clean repeats since. Upper section is exilerating. Excellent climb
