12m. A later (but easier) "version" of the original route: this goes up the centre of the obvious steep wall to the right of Rotten Corner but fails at the top. Climb easily to the first bolt; then make hard moves to the second and step left, escaping the final headwall. Continue easily up ledges to the abseil station of Rotten Corner.

Found the start tricky but worked it out to the small crimps then easy enough.

Up to the brake and moved left. On lowering off seen there were hold going direct so will try that next time. Ps . This isn't a traditional route.

Hard! Didn't really know the sequence until I was getting pumped out trying to do the direct finish. Should have read the guidebook properly.

Wet day. Tried headwall direct this time. Damp pocket in break unusable - hard F6c+ eliminate?

Direct at the top via a new bolt. One slip on the headwall, felt about 6c/+.

did this expecting it to be hard and it wasn't! would struggle to give it french 6b!nice moves but short lived and it is most certainly not a trad route!

ripper 03/Mar/13 Lead

Felt more like a sport microroute and not terribly hard - F6b? went left at the top. Couple of nice moves on the lower slab then all over

Left or right above 2nd bolt? Straight is hard, though doable probably at English 6a. Left = clip tat on the Rotten corner next door. Damp holds so not possible today :(

Why does this get a trad grade? And the crux is more like 5c. 6b sport though :p

More like French 6a than English. has bolts and a thread. not claiming any E points for this one!

Interesting route. I went left after the 2nd bolt to clip some tat. Route is actually easier than it looks.

Sort of finished, old guidebook says finish direct, new one says finish to the side which is much easier. Couldn't do direct finish

Didn't finish direct - went right ish usiong the left edge of the ledge. Top roped it on left on flowstone on the way down but this is close to some other old chossy corner. It does go apparently, so we were told, but probably at a lot harder than F6a+.
