Rockfax Description
A great route, where you can see how the glacier gouged out the pass. Starting just right of the main crack, gain the crack, following it until you can make a bold reach out left to a pocket. Move up to a ledge and make one more tricky move up the groove above. © Rockfax

Stiff, gear would be hard to place in top of crack

Could've done with a warm up but most of crag dripping. Bone dry and not too hard once you locate hard to spot holds. Impossible to grade routes like this, not really an E2 experience but would make a brilliant E3 crux if on top of a 20m E1.

Great little route with good gear where needed.

richardr 22/Jun/14 Lead

Failure on the very last move. Tired. Great little route though. I was very impressed with my cat-like jump down onto the sloping ledge after my first attempt at the top!

Quite serious if you can't place the top runner. Easy to do with a bit of lateral thinking.
