Rockfax Description
The fine jutting pillar is the best route on the cliff, though sadly the ancient bolts that protect it turn the whole thing into a bit of a worry-fest. The final roof is quite tough but at least this section has some proper runners. © Rockfax

Longsufferingropeholder 4 Aug, 2018 TR β Abbed to check the bolts, waited to stop laughing, then flashed on TR. 5c feels right.

Wizzy 28 Sep, 2015 Solo RP Cool route. Hard 5c crux, with a bad fall. Then more 5b/c above. Probably deserves E5

dmacmorris 9 Apr, 2015 Solo rpt Must say very surprised at grade but i guess if you lack a strong head I guess it's justifiable. The line is clearly the best looking line of the crag and worth while for anyone. Every move is static and well controlled. Was going to lead it but tbh solo was simpler since the top is fair safe when sequence is found. My first grit route.

Martin Davies 20 Oct, 2013 TR O/S Fine moves, non existent gear = would only lead if 100% sure not gonna fall as would be serious!

Sankey 11 May, 2011 TR TR out of curiosity, climbing seemed 5c, but bolts look terrible, can't believe they reduce the grade to a e3 tick!!

thrutch 13 Dec, 2009 2nd O/S Lovely climb, sunny day, not as hard as appears, but that's easy to say on a top rope. Good lead matt

ajtay ??, 1988 Solo This was E2 5C when I did it - poor bolts - but not too hard. Oh, and I've just noticed my solo of this could be the first bolt free ascent! It was definitely late 80s. Aren't I clever!
