Rockfax Description
An excellent and memorable route with a run-out section that will put hairs on your chest! Start below a crack and climb edges up and left, then back right, to reach the first gear in the crack. Follow the crack, sometimes on the wall to the left or right, to gain the pipe. Make bold moves to a shot-hole below a tower, then move left to a groove and follow it easily to a belay on a large flat ledge. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A classic crack climb of the slate quarries. Climbs the distinct crackline up rainbow slab. Climb with interest to the metal pipe, tie this off then boldly continue up the easier slab above. belay well back.

No chalk on route made the run out section hard to read as I thought there was 2 ways possible. Started to rain just as I was about to press on so I waited for things to clear. The thin moves to the niche were awesome & exciting. Enjoyable thereafter. 3 star route & one of the best Iv done.

Was a bit scared on the hard start until I got gear in but then managed to lace it up until the run out at the top so it felt nice and safe despite some technical moves on small feet and hands. Had to think through majority of moves lower down but felt quite steady as plenty of no hands rests possible in between to rest, place gear and contemplate next moves. Run out was much easier climbing, still enjoyable, and didn't feel too bold despite lack of gear.
