Rockfax Description
A small corner leads easily to the mid-height ledge. Step left and move steeply up a shallow groove and wall to a lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climbs up to the left hand side of the pod/niche and makes a scary clip before you hit the crux...
Powerful moves up the flake lead to a scary mini run out on positive holds to gain easier ground above to where the route finally eases out to about 6b+ climbing
Just a little awkward move at the top to gain the chains..... Fantastic positions!

Ticklists: The Orme 7a+'s, North Wales Rock Graded List, North Wales Sport Climbing.

Wasn't sure how I'd get on with this after Axle Attack but it felt fine. Think this is only 7a as the hard section is pretty short, though the moves are quite powerful even with bridging. Guess I can now cope with that! Mildly exciting getting to the first clip (didn't have a clip stick) and standing up on the ledge. Led putting clips in.

Expected to fall again especially as I got boxed on Axle Attack! Gave it everything and luckily the runouts get easier the higher you get. Why can't I onsight E4 at the moment!?!? Think today will help me click into 'go for it' mode on the onsights of E4s once you know the gear is good just go for it.
