Rockfax Description
A good route that rises to a climax in its upper corner. Start at a wide chimney at the right-hand end of the ledge.
Climb the chimney and then move out onto its left wall. Work up leftwards to join the right-trending crack-line. Climb the crack-line to its end below a steep groove. Make some hard moves to enter and move up the groove. Easier ground above leads to the top. © Rockfax

Backed off the crux. It was pretty wet which really wasn't helping the cause. Much harder than I remember it?!

cool route I imagine it only gets two stars because of its neighbours, 3 any where else!

Great lead from Luke. Great route, sustained techy climbing to get into the corner groove and beyond. Decent but spaced holds.

Cool moves above good gear with a slightly longer than expected run out to the top.

Slid off on the final (yes final) move! Oh well... Great lead by Nick on a technical route with some sustained moves through the top groove.

nickdonohue 06/Jun/15 Lead

A good climb; sustained though not strenuous at the crux (but relying on technical bridging). Well protected. :)

Ian Jones 11/Apr/15 2nd rpt

Felt very much harder this time. Definitely E3 despite what the new definitive says.

A nice route to finish the weekend on. Fun chimney section with optional back and footing followed by a great VS/HVS section up the C shaped flake before the 5c moves kick in. Pretty easy for the grade (a good grade easier than Raven Wall), I'd say hard E2 if you don't mind being a bit above gear (which is good). Good crux section which carries on longer than you expect but is pretty steady with lots of bridging.
