Rockfax Description
A big line above the large triangular roof - take care with some of the rock. Start as for Gondor.
1) 4a, 26m. The rib and wall on the left to a block and belay.
2) 4b, 20m. Move up a little then traverse right into the large corner and continue across to a wide crack. Climb the crack and corner past large detached blocks to a stance below a small overhang.
3) 4c, 25m. Climb the long corner-crack to the top. © Rockfax

Simon Holden (LCandCC) 8 Jun, 2013 Lead dog Came into this from the descent route from the Little man so skipped the first pitch. Second pitch was hardly worth doing except for preventing rope drag. The top pitch has lots off loose stuff. Came off around the old rusty peg which I clipped, as well as having pro nearby. Not sure what happened, I think a hold snapped. fell a long way and bashed myself up on the way down. Managed to finish the route, but the walk off was very slow and painful. On crutches now, with a purple and blue heel, and very painful knee.

atyson1 8 Jun, 2013 2nd Fair bit of loose rock lurking on this in parts, nice exposure fromm the top pitch. Skipped the bottom pitch with a h/l traverse from low man, not really recomended as on crappy sloping grass ledges. Simon took a good whipper off a loose hold ripping gear but dusted himself off and finished the route. Descent back down was a struggle as his leg was bashed up.

duncana 8 Jun, 2013 AltLd Did in two pitches, Pippa overshot first belay (not obvious!), then I did the whole top corner. Hard and sustained VS, got rucksack caught on old peg at one point and couldn't move, nearly off.

Martin Bennett 24 May, 2010 - After backing off Charybdis in a "lack of moral fibre" moment. Not the best climb on the crag, and dodginess and dirt perhaps justify HVS?
