Rockfax Description
A fantastic route which is just about worth E3.
1) 4c, 10m. Start as for Icarus.
2) 5c, 28m. Traverse left along the ledge until it runs out. A committing move left into the base of the hanging corner - usually wet - is followed by more sustained climbing up the corner (the crux is passing the overlap) until you eventually reach a plinth on the right. Easier climbing up the continuation of the groove leads to the top. © Rockfax

George_Surf 9 Apr Lead O/S In 1 pitch; maybe better to start direct if you do it like this? Got good high purple dragon before the committing move left in to the corner (it was pouring). Found it safe and steady to the overlap, but this was very strenuous (past the wobbling dagger flake). I laybacked the crack, feet on the overhanging face. Hard! Maybe bridge the corner instead? Easier above. Pretty exposed climbing but slightly unbalanced with 2m of hard moves. Poor belays, look well back!!

shaunhumphreys 18 Aug, 2018 Lead dnf Ming connies, got to the awkward middle section and the big block you get a jam behind moved about 2 inches, Became convinced it was going to fall out and chop my rope so sacked it off since I was basically climbing in a cloud anyway and not having that much fun! Gave the block a bit of a wiggle on ab to try to get it out, Looks pretty close to coming out to me so be careful! but then again it might just stay there for another 100 years

Euan Todd 1 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Fantastic route! Pretty intimidating line on a steep bit of the crag, so wasn't sure if I was going to go for the lead today, but given how dry it's been lately why not give it a shot? Did it in a oner with the scrambly first pitch, only downside of this was a bit of rope drag higher up - could short pitch this to save on drag? Step across was committing, to say the least! Sustained technical climbing leads to the crux (which I did with wide bridged feet, as per). Eases off after the pillar, my only issue at this point was the aforementioned drag! Total effort to climb the last 10 metres hauling up my red rope every second move - ah well. Topped out to lovely evening sun over the coast, absolutely smashing.
