Rockfax Description
Exhilarating climbing on an intimidating line that is far easier than its appearance would suggest. Low in the grade. Start below an overhanging right-slanting flake-crack, 5m right of the descent ramp.
Pull directly up the overhanging wall using the flake-crack to an easing in angle. Traverse right above the flake-crack to gain the base of the much friendlier upper wall. Above is a very thin crack, move left past this and climb the blank looking wall on excellent pockets to the top. © Rockfax

Not sure if I trusted the integrity of the rock

Got on it too early, still in the shade, cold and wet in many places although there was usually a dry bit somewhere

Technically 4c. Nice route. Bottom wall/overlap a jug fest but with limited pro, hence HVS. Slab above is straight forward.

Oops! Lead this by mistake thinking it was Silent Movie. No way would I have taken it on if I thought it was HVS 5a, and thinking it was VS 4b all the way up was a great psychological boost! Although, I must say it's over-graded in my opinion.

Thought it was a bit tough for VS, oh that's cause we're on the wrong route! Great lead Matt!

Excellent, the start is a bit intimidating but very juggy and the slab is nice and delicate with good holds. This crag has some atmosphere too!
