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 has been added up and left. © Rockfax

CRead 16 Apr Lead O/S didn't even occur to me to check the bolts, just climbed past them...spicy! Almost glad I did though as the climbing was incredible. Probably had the coolest moves from our first day on the slate. E2

ebutton 15 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Found this quite hard but really good. Was also very hot. 2nd bolt is f***ed so probably does merit E3 as I'm pretty sure a whip would pull it out (groundfall), so BEWARE.

geoff b 29 Sep, 2016 Lead dnf 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.

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!!
