Rockfax Description
Thin cracks lead to good runners in the second break. The gritty and gripping exit is too far above them for comfort. © Rockfax

βeta: Fine at E2 5c if exiting slightly leftwards. Not E3 as at least one cam is bomber

Hidden 15 May Lead rpt
Bethan May Davies 15 May Lead RP Lead this on Ozzys gear after he tried to lead it and took a huge lob off the top! Got his leg behind the rope and only had gear in half way up. The top out feels like the crux and is very slopey! I caught him but the weight difference pulled me right up and his head swooshed against the ground. We were both laughing but it was quite spicy. He managed it on second with a bit of aid pulling on the anchor. Team Competent.

AsleepOnBelay 10 Sep, 2015 Lead pulled on as boulder problem a couple of times, then led to break and put wrong size cams in (other on the Rasp). Finally had a proper go with the right size cams and it went fine. Easier to fiddle gear from above on the flake. Nice rockover and top out not that bad. Maybe I was a bit to the left. Harder than the Rasp? err, no :)

Calum Wadsworth 14 May, 2015 Lead O/S Good route, steeper than it looks! Feel it is worthy of the grade because its touch and go if you would deck from the top out (which is probably the crux). Worth doing though!

Graeme Hammond 13 Sep, 2012 Lead rpt Blew the O/S having a rest after getting pumped after placing the gear. Abseiled for gear after lowering off but realised the rest probably wouldn't have been too hard. Was dark by this stage but couldn't wait so led by head torch.
