Rockfax Description
A good route that requires a few wires to protect it in addition to the bolts. Start to the right of a tree. Ascend the steep wall to a ledge. Move up to a wire at the base of the arete and foot traverse left to a bolt. From here, follow the line of weakness up and right past wires and a second bolt to the lower-off. If you are carrying on with The Monster Kitten, top out and belay off a bolt and tree. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A bold but easier lower section up ledges leads to well-protected technical climbing on the slab above. Two bolts protect the route but wires may also come in handy. Double bolted lower off or top-out and carry on up Monster Kitten.

Ticklists: North Wales Rock Graded List, AMC Uni Ticklist, 2017 Welsh Slate Trad.

Lead clean on sight. Bold scary moves to gain the large ledge yield gear in the blocky cracks off right (bad rope drag – advise use of doubles). Hard moves from the first bolt gain the crack, gear and then a good jug rest. Second bolt easily gained but committing to leave (crux). Topped out and threaded from above.

Got talked into trying this despite having only led a few VD trad routes before! Slightly damp rock due to plenty of rain earlier didn't help. Almost reached the first bolt but just wasn't confident enough in the grip or the gear below and decided to retreat sideways to the escape route ledge.

Tried it as my first slate lead first but fell from 4 metres, gear ripped and I decked out! Luckily no injuries, Ollie then lead it and I second it clean.

how good! ive avoided this in the past as it doesnt look so great from the ground but it really is very good: delicate and thoughtful with a tricky finish. the start feels a bit bold but is steady. well protected for the rest.
