Rockfax Description
To the right of Centrefold is a well-protected hard route best climbed in one big pitch by a confident leader by extending runners low down to reduce rope drag. The upper crack is well protected and very strenuous. © Rockfax

Ed Booth 10 Jun Lead dog Balls, 2 lead attempts, 2nd on the kit with pulled rope. Used a single. Fell going right to the finish crack by the lip both times. First go was matched over in it but stalled and tried to chalk up and got insa pump. Stam feels ok on big holds but need to work on some power endurance for harder sections.

Avon Man 30 Jul, 2016 Lead dnf Was aiming for Centrefold, but misunderstood the route description in the old Paul Williams guide and ended up battling halfway up this route (thinking it was a bit punchy for E3) before slumping desperately on a small cam far above my last gear. A harrowing experience.

Tom Livingstone 30 Jul, 2014 Lead dnf A tough cookie. Pumped out on the o/s in the final headwall crack. Tried ground up but was boxed - managed to get within a couple of metres of the top before peeling off. Now a bit cleaner and less full of bird shit.

jfletcher 20 Aug, 1995 Lead dog Daytime temp ~30 degrees, got on it early but still hot and greasy. 1 fall on route & 75ft fall off top VS slab when I had no gear left to place and foothold snapped. Trip to Bangor General for stiches. Memorable!

Mike Owen 13 May, 1990 Lead O/S I thought this was a lot harder than The Jub Jub Bird. Tough placing the gear but makes it very safe. Chuffed with the onsight and great fun doing it with Paul Williams.
