Rockfax Description
Good climbing up the centre of the wall with a low crux as you move up from the flake. Above the climbing is easier but still tricky until the finish of Fromage Frais is joined. © Rockfax

Jamie Hoare 18 Aug Lead RP The bottom of this route felt really hard. I found my own way of getting through the first crux, steeping through, right foot high and pulling hard on the left hand to reach high and over to the ledge with my right. trusting the foot never felt solid but as soon as my hand connected with the ledge i wouldnt let it go. From that the second crux I could get it about 50% of the time. I got it on top rope and think i could get it on lead

igola 1 Aug, 2018 Lead dog Rob Roy, 7a - Dinas Rock, Roadside Good face climb with low dynamic crux and another dynamic move. Clip stick first clip, get up to ledge, from there clip second one, get to ledge rest. RH on small good hold out right, LH on rail under bolt, LF very high put left, bump up right foot higher on ledge. Dynamically push weight over LF and reach to left side-pull crimp. Optional intermediate for your RH (not very good). RF on ramp by second bolt, reach up with RH to good hold, match with LH, sort out feet, clip 3rd. RF on intermediate crack right to 2nd bolt, left foot up to ramp, reach up to good flake with RH. LF on decent foothold to slightly left below 3rd bolt, move RF up to small but good foothold on face, LH on good side pull just above RH, LF on very good hold where LH was. Optional foot hold out right for RF, dynamically reach with LH to good, positive ledge, RH just above on good hold, sort out feet. Clip here or from the side pulls. Go up and right to mega flake, clip 5th. Heel on good ledge, but keep a space to match feet later on, reach up to flake, mega holds! Match feet, bring feet higher, left heel in flake a bit lower, reach up for an even bigger flake with LH clip lower off.
