Rockfax Description
A good two-pitch sport route. Start left of the main slab, just to the right of a concrete slab.
1) 5+, 25m. Climb directly up the slab to where it meets an overlap. A hard move right past this gains the main wall. A series of mantelshelves leads past four bolts to a ledge (possible belay). Traverse right along Dandelion Ledge to a bolt belay.
2) 6a, 15m. Climb the corner to below the roof. Either climb directly over the roof (hard) or move out left round the bulge. Continue up the corner to a good stance and bolt belay. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start:- To the left of the impressive main slab lies a huge complex wall rising over 100ft. This route starts below the middle of the wall at a short concrete-coated slab.

L1 15m F6a:- Climb directly up this slab past 2 bolts to where the slab meets a ramp-like arete abutting the wall above. Climb over or around the nose to gain a series of mantleshelves leading past 4 bolts to a ledge with bolt belays

L2 8m F3a:- Traverse right along Dandelion Ledge to gain another airy perch on the far arete. Bolt belays.

L3 12m F6a/6a+:- Climb directly up the corner to below the roof (2 bolts). Either climb directly over the roof (6a+) or move out left and up to rejoin the corner (6a). Continue delightfully up the corner crack (3 bolts) to a good stance and bolt belays.

Georgie led pitch 1 & 2 together (as there is not a proper belay on pitch 1 any more), I led pitch 3. Abseil descent. There are lots of loose bolt stubs on this route (and no bolts on pitch 2, although you shouldn't really need them). There are still two bolts at the top with maillons but they are widely (2m+) separated and the rope from the left side runs over a sharp edge (I smoothed the edge off slightly).

G Weatherley 17/Jul/16 AltLd

Led P1&2 in single pitch. Andy did P3. Abseiled off. Anchors at top are spaced and not ideal.

First pitch only. A balancey start off the concrete slab then a tricky move onto the main wall before the route becomes a breeze. Only one bolt at the first lower-off point though so left a maillon in the last bolt before the top.
