Rockfax Description
A very good and direct line. Gain the ledge and climb the broad rib above to a niche at 12m. Step left round a blunt rib, gain a ledge, and fight up the short corner right of a bulge to follow a groove to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Agree that rockfax have fluffed the topo and description of this route. Have to make it up. Worthwhile route though, despite broken rock appearance.

βeta: Rockfax Topo and description no very good. Logical line climbs up the back of the niche before stepping left round the rib. That's where the gear is anyway

badgerjockey 26 Aug Lead O/S A nice steep route with plenty of good holds and interesting moves but some questionable rock higher up. All took my weight though, despite appearances. Lovely view from the top.

Cuillin Calling 12 Jul Lead Started up this, drifted too far left and did tricky move right to get ledge at top of rib. Then went left on a v bold traverse below and to left of steep corner before finishing direct. So first half of CR2 and second half of CR1 which made it feel q hard VS.

Martin Hore 7 May, 2018 Lead O/S Quite difficult to follow the Rockfax description for this one. At half-height I moved a step left from the niche and took the unprotected wall/groove (left of the bulge)to the ledge above. This keeps the line direct and gives excellent climbing but should IMO be HVS and (low) 5a.

Had severe rope drag on account of getting lost and not paying attention (actually thought my belayer had fallen asleep on the rope.) biut the climb has some great positive holds. Thanks Wales :)

The Ivanator 25 May, 2015 Lead O/S Some hard moves in upper half above sometimes marginal gear, HVS 4c? CC guide says that direct up the short corner is an HVS variant, but this seems to be line described by Rockfax as VS 4c. Good sequences and definitely worth a star.
