Rockfax Description
Do you hand or foot traverse it? The route tackles the diagonal hairline crack which is protected by small wires and microwires. Towards the top the crack runs out and a bold step right onto jugs is required. Finish straight up to the lower-off or top out and belay on the level above. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Follow the rightwards trending seam until it is possible to bridge across to Ladder Resist and finish up easier ground to the lower-off. Best approached via Mental Lentils as the scramble up the ledge is loose and unpleasant.

Immediately got pumped and rested on a micro nut, retreated back to the tree and second go got a micro cam in above the nut (in a horrible fashion) took a rest on the cam which popped after about 2 seconds, grabbed the tree and the branch snapped, then the mirco nut blew and I ended-up on my arse. Better come back when I've learnt to place small gear lol

Amazing to get this. Looks really intimidating and certainly not my style of climbing. Was expecting to take some air time before setting off. Glad the hand holds are all positive as there's not much at all for your feet on the face. Was expecting it to be pumpy but only my left foot seemed to suffer. There's a good nut placement near the end, just before the bridge across but you loose a nice hold so I took it back out (might be able to get a micro cam in just below it). Pretty happy with the rest of the gear though but didn't want to test it with the runout at the end..

Fantastic little route! Didn't think the climbing was too bad (sustained 5b?) but managed to get good no hands rests with feet in the crack for pretty much every gear placement so it wasn't pumpy at all. Used Ryan's brass offsets, awesome bits of gear! They just fit, need to get me some! Think using them brings the grade down a bit as I was able to get a lot of gear in and only had a little run out at the very top.

great fun - this looks a bit full on after youve done the first move or two and are staring straight up the crack but ultimately its very steady. great gear throughout and a good finish - short but very worthwhile.

This was my second ever climb on slate and my first E1, right after mental lentils. I rested two times.

Very sustained, fun

Ace route, not particularly strenuous apart from on my left leg. Good gear and an inspiring line make this one of my favourite slate routes.
