Start at the foot of a "messy" crack beneath an impressive overhanging arete. Follow this easily to a good thread. Climb diagonally left to small cave and more good threads, then move back right following a line of holes and pockets to in-situ threads and an old peg. Move straight up past this (crux) to a steep corner crackline and follow it with continued interest to the top!

Best of Symonds Yat!

jon_gill1 14 Jun, 2014 Lead O/S The bottom section is very poor and vegetation is at quite a high level at the minute.I was surprised to find it in that condition given it supposed to be one of the yats best climbs.The top crack is good but the peg at the crux is in bad shape. Red rose speedway is a far better route in my opinion!

monsteratt 21 Jun, 2011 Lead O/S One of the best routes I've probably done at the Yat. Felt on edge due to threat of darkeness. Nothing special on the first half, but then goes through some pretty steep territory on some great pockets. Will have to do this again when it's not getting dark.
