Rockfax Description
Start up the right-hand flake. Make a tricky move to reach the first bolt. Layback up to the top of the pinnacle. A committing reach up and right leads to better holds and the slab. Follow the ramp rightwards to a small spike. A crack now leads back left - follow this to a lower-off. © Rockfax

βeta: Rock is loose and sharper at beginning than in past, and can feel flexing on what is still there. Ripped off a large piece not long after first bolt. Resulted in cut finger and rope sheath.

Mike505 11 Sep, 2017 Lead O/S Worth walking up for. The 'pinnacle' at the top of the initial flake is pretty loose and wobbles along with the thin block in front of it so tread carefully. Once over the overlap climbing eases but gear thins, one nut placement fell apart on me and now takes a large size 6 brass offset and an rp 2. Up the crack and the gear thins again but the position and moves are great!

George_Surf 5 Sep, 2017 Lead O/S This was ok. Red cam low down and the up the sharp flake passing the bolts. Some dodgy rock. The big massive pedestal is loose, shouldn't have put a sling on it. Gear around there is ok but not incredible. Pulling through is fine and there's more gear (small/rps) up to the lower off

JonesE 9 Oct, 2016 Lead O/S Superb climb. Initial flake does feel like it's going to rip off (bolt protected to stop anyone putting cams behind it I suspect). Best done on half ropes.

ksjs 19 Feb, 2013 Lead O/S Very nice indeed and the upper slab is a delight (take micro wires). 'Easy' climbing all the way but the edge of the flake does feel like it might explode between 1st and 2nd bolt.
