A good route with a steep finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The first of 5 full sports routes in the middle area of the crag. A direct line through 'Ladybird', and the start of 'Relax'. Fingery through the central section (try not to wander off into 'Great Expectations') and with a good finishing roof. Abseil station a few feet back from the top.

Wimped out of final move for some reason! Could see the move but couldn't go for it. Really sustained, excellent route with some v thin moves. Great crag.

More sustained and interesting than Deus ex Machina in my opinion.

Think I skipped some of the harder sections with a long reach, but had fun anyway! A bit pumpy at the end for me, but an enjoyable top out as a reward.

Managed most of the moves. Could remember most of the difficult crux moves and crucially remembered some of the key footholds for me. Need to get much lighter and fitter tho.

Third redpoint session. Made it through the bottom half of the crux to the mid-way holds. Using a smear foothold meant I wasn't continually pinging off the small crimps. Got onto the good foothold, but wasn't sure where to put my hands to fell off. Good steady progress.

Can confirm that the block that the 3rd bolt is in, is loose. However thankfully the climbing at the 3rd bolt is very easy. Still I'd leave off onsighting it till this is fixed. More top roping this time. Got through the bottom of the crux. Fell off at the next set of crimps, but it's still progress. Was able to link/do all the moves on the top of the crux and the very top, nothing that hard, was just tired so took a few falls. Good progress.

Got up to the crux, where I was able to reach the middle holds on the crux, but couldn't move on from them. The first section is easy 6a climbing, but the crux is quite technical and fingery.

Block the size of a dinner plate came off the upper wall after my foot was firmly on it. Nearly hit Nick who leapt, catlike, out of the way though not without catching a stray fragment on the arse. Exciting!

Grade is a bit height dependent. I found it a long stretch, so maybe Fr6c
