Rockfax Description
Technically challenging moves on excellent rock. Start at a flowstone curtain below a tiny corner in the lower wall.
Climb to a good flowstone hold and thread and continue to a ledge below an open groove in the upper wall. Climb the groove, past a peg, to a small nut just before the top and finish with care onto grass. Tree belay. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A broken hold has reduced the seriousness and technicality to E2 5b. Start below the 2nd ledge of stalactite. Climb flowstoneflake feature direct to right hand edge of large ledge; a long reach and akward mantle gain this. Balance and bridge upwards to peg runner (back up micro wire in flake) where hard moves up and left gain a spike and a rest. One last hard move leads up and right to a grassy top out and tree belay.

interest all the way..did a stylish knee for the mantel... nice techy climbing up the main wall.. though did seem to run out of footholds - high right foot saved the day. Put total trust in the peg

longest day for the year and ended up climbing in the dark that's my excuse for not finishing clean!

Rested at final move up to the top. Rusty peg holds ok and can be backed up. Nice climbing.

Very wet and mossy from the rain of recent months. Final groove not possible, so reversed across to finish up Stalactite Direct

First E2! Scary crux at the top led to pulling on grass to top out!

Very easy for E3! E2 is more like it. Nice little route though.

francois 17/Sep/14 TR O/S

Nice couple of moves, but the exit is quite dirty. Might be worthwhile having a belay rope on the top.

Good route. Probably soft E2 5b but still worth a visit.

Good interesing climbing all the way to the good hold, but couldn't do the move from there on - either need more reach/gas or a completely different approach...

The rock was dry at last, but I still cocked up the final moves by falling off, but nailed it next attempt!

Top groove very wet. Climbed clean, no falls, no rests. But felt more like 6a because of the conditions!

Um, can't really claim the tick as it turns out a hold has recently broken off resulting in a jug where the crux was previously. Maybe E1/2 5b in current state depending on how much you trust the gear?
