Rockfax Description
A swerving line that finishes boldly up the headwall of the cliff. Start on the huge boulder that rests against the base of the right-hand side of the crag.
1) 4c, 23m. Move up the wall to a horizontal break and climb leftwards along a crack to an area of quartz. Move up to the corner and follow it to a stance and belay below an overhang.
2) 5a, 18m. Move rightwards to clear the overhang and gain the headwall. Move up rightwards towards the corner of Thane before climbing back slightly left and boldly ascending the wall to the top. © Rockfax

Great route! Strong lead from Ahab, glad I wasn't on the sharp end for this one! The move out of the stance warrants 5b, in my opinion. Definitely E1 psychologically.

Lumbering Oaf 20/Apr Lead O/S

Ran it in one long pitch. Lower section is pretty steady - although big cam or hex/large sling is needed at the first belay stance, was disappointed not to have anything large enough for the available placements and had to fiddle around for small pro instead. Leaving the stance is a little tricky and the top part felt bold to me.

Great route, easy to do in one pitch. Getting off the middle ledge is a tricky long reach.

Lead p2 but didn't find particularly bold. Some nice climbing on some excellent little pockets! Thought hardest move was some step across on p1.
