Bolts lead you up a lonely line on this slab. Technical, sustained and run-out, with a sting in the tail! © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Follow Ghenghis to the first bolt, then up left passing two further bolts to an exiting finishing move,easier for the tall!

Bold and amazing. Was a bit nervous about the first bolt being so high but it's easy climbing. Enjoyed the traverses. Didn't find being short made it that difficult so don't worry if you are just trust your feet. Super runouts that do keep you fully focused and crimping on for dear life. ***

Deeeeeecent. Felt calm and controlled all the way and climbed pretty fast

Took a lot of psyching up to get on this, eventually got on after hours of faffing. Felt Scary and hard really good route with a bold start. Reachy Top but a little pop sorted that out.

Spicy, certainly got my pulse going! I mistook the very last bolt (which is next to an old bolt with a maillon on it) for the lower-off (wasn't really thinking straight by that point) and sat on the rope when I got there. Whatever, I'm taking it!

Quite hard/scary to the first bolt. Couldn't work out how to traverse to the 3rd bolt (took 2 big whippers before giving up)

Found this really sustained and enjoyable, and not too hard, until the top move. It's absolutely desperate if you're short!! Ended up pulling on a draw to reach the ledge.

Brilliant! Sustained and spicy but never desperate or dangerous (wouldn't want to come off on the runouts though as would get scraped on the slab). Warm up 5c move to get to the first bolt, high up but fine as the holds are positive. Lots of 6a and hard 5c moves after that, all the way to the final reachy pull for the top. A few rests but feet generally painful. Need some stiffer shoes really but managed it ok. Pleased!

First E4! Done after Khubla Khan. Very sustained and had to make some tricky moves quite far from the bolts. Did manage to get some rests in.

Unbelievable - climbed cleanly and steadily all the way, then fell off literally millimetres from clipping the top bolt! So annoyed, and bruised heels to remind me never to drop the top again!

Hard for the short at top, felt like the crux to get top ledge. sustained, calf-pumping, harrassing, excellent. Didnt start up khubla, nearly e5 imo.
