Rockfax Description
A long and sustained line up the narrow wall that is set slightly forward from the main section of the wall. Low in the grade. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A very long route with some hard moves just below half-height and fingery throughout. Unfortunately has a poor start. Note- A 'hole' has opened up just over one of the overlaps after the half-height ledge which wasn't present during the first ascent.At the top, pull left to finish.

βeta: The lower wall has got marginally harder due to the loss of a hold and is now even more fingery. At the top move right slightly before stepping left to the belay. Reasonable for 7b but very reachy for the short.

Misha 10 Jul, 2015 Lead RP Had tried this a few years ago. Bottom crux went fine, top crux took a lot of working out and committing to but went nicely in the end. Very cruxy, the top crux in particular is pretty hard but there's a good rest below it and other than the cruxes the route is no more than 6c. Don't think this is really 7b as the hard bits are short and not that hard. A bit more than 7a though with that top crux. 7a+? Evening session on the way to the Pass.

Misha 4 Sep, 2011 Lead dog The crux took three goes: the holds are ok and most of the sequence is pretty obvious but I got fooled into getting wrong handed before the last hard move - need L rather than R on the little crimp off whic you go for some better holds in a break. The headwall above the large ledge felt hard and pumpy after three days of climbing. The route would probably be around 6c/+ without the crux but it was hard to tell as I got pretty boxed. Pleased to get the headwall without a rest, though went out R above the last bolt - looked like there was a harder direct version using a very small crimp. Keen to redpoint this as the crux is very doable. Would be a very good route if it wasn't so dirty. Thanks to Helen for suggesting Llanymynech on the way back from a rainy Peak District after Brian's BBQ.
