Rockfax Description
A tricky pitch that is bolder since the microwire placements have blown out! It can be split at the flakes/ledges at half-height. Start by some ledges just before the scree, below a vague rib. Ascend the rib to a shattered crack, get in as much gear as possible because there isn't much more! Carry on up the shattered crack until the climbing gets hard and a foothold can be seen out left. Make a very committing move left onto the foothold, after which good holds lead to the broken ledges. Take the right-hand line of two bolts, passing the second via a tricky move - to get out of the letter-box provides the crux. Above, easier but bold climbing leads up and right to the top. © Rockfax

Been worrying about trying this for years, sky hooks calmed me down but not by much. The best E5 on the slab!

2nd pitch only, linked from the Rainbow. Couldn't crack the move past the second bolt but sent the rest of the run-out

Ignore the E6 scare note in the new guide - gear didn't look to have changed, still E5.
