Rockfax Description
A popular route. Climb the line of weakness to a bolt, make a hard traverse right to gain the crack and a small wire. Carry on up the crack/ramp-line past a bolt on the right. Then, at the bolt above the ramp on the left, move up and left onto a headwall, and make for the large ledge below the lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A popular route, well-protected. Ascend the LH crackline to the first bolt, then make the crux move to gain the RH crackline and further protection. With a new, third bolt near the top, the finish is best tackled direct.

Misha 05/May/13 Lead O/S

Mark and I thought the crux was hard 5c, i.e. 6b+ or 6c, certainly not 6a+! Or was that due to early season weakness? Funny hybrid route, crux is fairly well protected by the bolt. The other two bolts are completely unnecessary. Didn't clip them, which made it feel more like a trad route and slightly bold on the direct finish, which is 5a/b. E1 5c overall.

still really good but this time i was wondering about the E2 grade - is this E1? probably not if you dont know what coming. detached block about 2/3rds (thats a guess) way up discovered by my partner - beware.

Should get a sport grade... the crux is protected by a bolt and the rest of it's a path. you get 3 bolts and you just need to place one wire between bolts 1 and 2. French 6b anyone???!!
