Rockfax Description
A good route, although eliminate low down. High up it is more independent, with a jump for the short, or a long stretch for the tall, to reach the final ledge. Glue-in bolts. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Trad grade E4 6b) Start right of dolerite dyke below a luminous wall. Follow the four bolts to overlap and then a seam (don't use the holds on the right). Go left into a faint crack to finish. Bolt belay/lower off.

eb202 26 Aug TR dog Techy and reachy. A bit eliminate. There is an tricky alternative to the jump. Bolts are a little spaced, first clip would have been hard for me.

Mike505 26 Aug Lead RP Slipped on first go trying to avoid using the ledge to the right, got it second go. Perhaps a little on the traditional side when it comes to bolting.

myrddinmuse 24 Aug TR dog Never a 6c+ if you stick to the bolt line with any rigor. Quite a few thin sequences with interesting moves! Loved the dyno. One to come back and try again.

samrad 22 Jan, 2011 Lead O/S there was some alright climbing but so many of the holds were lose/fell off in my hands. the largeish crimp below the third bolt snapped in half when i gave it a tug to check how solid it was and the same happend to quite a number of other holds (maybe freeze thaw over winter??). still maintains its grade of 6c/+ dispite bits coming off :)
