Rockfax Description
Follow the ramp-line at the bottom of the slab for 6m - good wire as a side runner. Step left onto a good spike runner. Now make a few bold moves, first left, then up to the first bolt. Head up and right to a second bolt. Exciting moves past this lead to a crack which is followed to a third bolt, before you pass the old belay chain, a new lower-off is up and left. © Rockfax

Good climbing but the second bolt is properly trashed.. on the verge of being able to be pulled out.

One slip, overreaching for a hold when I should have worked my feet up

DONT CLIMB!! Could pull the 2nd bolt out if the wall 30mm. I'll email the crag moderator.

Retreated from the 2nd bolt having made the move past it to the big hold & then considered the following: the 2nd bolt doesn't just have a loose hanger, the bolt itself is moving backwards & forwards in the hole (I could even get a clove-hitched sling behind the hanger)! It needs replacing before someone falls off & decks it 'cos the bolt pulls out.

Carried a rack up for no particular reason, there is no gear. Spike runner also absent. Did this after forgetting to bring micros for CTD doh, good 2nd prize but scary and intense.

Just felt like a slightly scary and badly bolted sport route, which is a shame because the climbing is great!

A brilliant slab route. Better and harder than never as good as the first time. Unfortunately I fell off just after the bolt and flipped upside down a very slow fall. lowered down to the floor got it second time quite sustained at 5c

Hard, but good moves. Hung around on first bolt to work out sequence to second bolt. Felt E3, as every bolt (particularly the second) was a full stretch plus some to clip (though I am only 5'8") - a case of stand on tiptoes, stretch, draw in fingertips, open and clip by pushing against hangar!!

Coops_13 27/Jun/13 Lead RP
Dan724 30/May/13 Lead O/S

Straightforward climbing with perfectly adequate bolting so E2 at a push and not E3. Very good though

Very hot and ran out of nervous energy: backed off after clipping bolt #2 - this required teetering long, long reach from small holds miles above previous bolt
