Rockfax Description
A fine little route, varied, sustained and with an exiting finish. Climb the groove then traverse right to the arete. The moves to pass this are unlikely but soon lead to the final juggy crack. © Rockfax

jessieleong 25 Jul Lead O/S Pleased to have got this. Start is fairly easy and straight forward- the roof/ traverse is a bit fiddly. Went for the jam in the crack and skirted right for a break before realising this was the route. Unlikely footholds and swinging out of the crack onto the face to reach the top- burly!

Crofty 21 Jun Lead O/S Rockfax topo is wrong. BMC guide correct. I did take a look at going up the V crack, but knew it was harder straight away, so moved right and around to the wall and thin crack finish. If using double ropes it is possible to flick one over the nose right of the V crack to protect the move up to the finish crack.

Last climb at the end of a hot day and I needed a rest before getting onto the slabby nose, then another before the final moves. Placed too much gear for confidence then had to suffer the rope drag. Definitely want to come back to do it clean.

gav 8 Jul, 2017 Lead β VS Challenge route 30/36. Start time 18:23. I think I said, while sat at the top, that I would have enjoyed this route had I not been knackered. Traverse right is pretty thin on footholds, though I did eventually find one to step to (using height to my advantage). Felt like I wouldn't have the beans to do the last bit, but kept going with some encouragement from some onlooking climbers who had just done the route.
