Rockfax Description
Either climb the previous route or make a diagonal abseil into the belay. Head straight up from the belay on easy ground and make a reach out left to clip the first bolts. Past the bolt, move up and left to a ledge and reach a second bolt. Crux moves up and left lead to a two-bolt lower-off. One bolt is over the top of the crag. © Rockfax

Misha 9 Jun Lead O/S Good pitch. Linked in from TBTBB as didn’t fancy F2ing the belay, even if it’s on 3 bolts, 2 of which are new. The moves to the first bolt are easy enough, 5a. Pretty hard crux going from the second bolt to the top. Weird top belay - I ended up doing a hanging stance to bring Tim up and then he effectively led through for a couple of moves to get onto the a cheval fin. I then lowered him off before climbing onto the fin. A bit of a faff. Part of our evening ramble up the first four pitches of the East Face link up. Started at 7pm and were at the base of Tango in Paris at 9pm - plenty of time to do that route but not the following two pitches and only had one rope so won’t have been able to ab off, so left it there to finish another day.

George_Surf 4 Sep, 2017 Lead O/S Pretty good climbing. Bold start but not too hard and fairly positive. 2 difficult crux's by the bolts though. I clipped the top and abseiled down, belayed from the level, brought rach up and she threaded the rings and abbed down too. confusing

shed_hed 30 Apr, 2016 Lead O/S Climbed straight after Too Bald to be Bold. Nice route with cool sequences. Didn't feel run out at start, found hardest moves mid route (though may have been down to rope drag) - foot slipped off a hold at one point as i was rocking over onto it but had good hand holds and managed to hold the slip. If doing the East Face link up then threading the anchor and being lowered down to the next ledge and belaying your second from there is probably a good idea.
