Rockfax Description
A good route but high in the grade. Start by the block on the terrace. Ascend the slab past two bolts to a ledge. Pass the first bolt (crux), then move right towards the arete past the second. From the ledge, make a hard move past another bolt to reach the lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start just left of the arete, climb boldly but easily to the first bolt where the useful holds run out. Teeter up to the second bolt and continue direct (not right) with determination to the ledge. Finish past a final bolt and tricky move to a bolt belay.

E4 in the slate guide and felt harder than Remain in Light. 40mph gusting cross wind made it more interesting too! Safe at least after the start.

Probably agree with E3, only 1 6a move, by a bolt.

cruised, 5b move to first bolt then well protected crux. then the rest is easy.

Was more concerned about belaying the first section.

Scott Quinn 15/Nov/14 Lead O/S

agree its soft, run out to the first bolt is easy, just a head game maybe 5a/b move just before the bolt but your gona fall onto the ledge and then down the never never land cutting ...sounds fun?

1st try. Soft for E4 but would not want to fall from the 1st section or the top. Good route.

SGD 08/Jul/14 TR RP

More shunt practice but with the aim of leading this one. 1st bolt is pretty high but not as high as slug club maybe 5a/b climbing? but a fall from before that bolt could send you over the edge and down into never neverland. Crux is well protected though and fairly short lived. Run out finish but easier climbing.

ianstevens 25/May/14 Lead O/S

No way this deserves a trad grade, felt more like f6c. Crux sequence is good fun, the top is a bit crap in comparison.

one cool section of climbing between the 1st and 2nd bolt with a balancy 5c move, but generally not a good route as there is not a good line. went up to the left at top. E3 5c

Duncan Campbell 07/Nov/10 Lead β

ground-up 2nd go. was really cold after belaying mason on never-neverland....got to crux on 1st go then got all confused with my feet and as i moved my foot up to the good foothold my hands popped. lowered to the ground, warmed up and then had it. wicked moves to, and up the arete. A good route IMHO

Stepped on 1 bolt, cos the foothold was crap. Actually the bolt looked a bit dodgy so I thought I'd check it would at least take body weight :P
