Rockfax Description
A very good climb with a series of excellent moves in its middle section. Start up Voices in the Bower. The small, detached-looking hold proves to be solid. © Rockfax

Tough layback at crux.

Wobbly hold before the crux but it seems reliable enough

Bit scrappy again, but very pleased with this one considering how long it's been since I last climbed outside :-)

2nd go, let myself get pumped at the crux on the onsight attempt.. Good climbing...

UnkArl 31/Mar/13 Lead O/S

Came straight down off Round the Bend and onsighted this so I guess my fitness is getting better. Really nice route, much more sustained than Round The Bend.

the loose hold (right hand jug at the crux) has gone but it isn't any harder

the large right hand hold at the break was loose on my ascent, and came off during a subsequent ascent. The remaining hold is probably just as good.
