Rockfax Description
A technical route up weird angles and slopers with some sharp rock. Use long quick-draws and move right above the last bolt to lower-off. Probably 7a+ if you can't do the reach. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
good solid climbing up the leaning ledges to the right of the black overhanging wall. tricky crux crossing the slab under the roof, and keep your head for the runout to the last bolt after you`ve sumounted the roof, steady climbing, but big fall potential if you slip, needs an extra bolt really for a sport route, spot on for the grade!

Crux was wet and popped off. Didn't bother with the cam as the rock would probably blow if you fell on it. May come back when its dry

The flake that you put the cam behind is moving and could well come off... wouldn't like to fall on it. (I just took the run out - ultimately safer even if it does feel airy.)

Fell once after getting pumped on the crux. Oh my lord the run out is so scary. Incredible feeling when I calmed my nerves and went for it though.

Wish I'd read the comments earlier a cam would have helped. So would a lack of water running down. Terrifying but great fun.

Kez fancied this even though I said it was wet. He bailed off at the crux slab. I took the lead and had to dog the crux slab and the overlap as the holds were wet. Did not have a cam either which made the run out particularly unnerving on wet holds. Made it up with great relief. Left the maillon at the reachy overlap, figured it was going to get some use. I'll be back. When it's dry :)

The reachy move kind of spoils an otherwise pleasant route

did the crux with a fairly outrageous heel, feel like there's definitely an easier way...

Really happy to have led this clean. The moves are fantastic all the way up! Although it is a bit like climbing on knives in parts.

Tried to do with seeping water on sections.rested twice at crux then got above to find there was a 5meter run out so lowered off as too wet and windy to risk it!only to find you could protect with a cam,I really should read the guide book!

Fantastic, really interesting and varied climbing. Could do with one more bolt, the cam popped without much encouragement as I moved past.

Got half way to the last bolt but lost my head. Wish I'd taken a cam! One to come back to. Horrible down climb back to overhang, then lowered off metolius quickdraw (free crag swag for anyone who gets there quick!)

Just about managed the crux, big move for the short. Placed 1.5 cam on the run-out and glad I did since the top jugs were wet and slimy.

fell on the crux - sloper was damp after recent rain.

A good route. Lots of quite funky moves and a stiff crux. If you're of a nervous disposition/prone to slipping, take a 1.5 friend for above the roof. Its not neccessary however because the climbing significantly eases.

good climbing, confusing little crux, will go back to lead clean!

Sardien 27/Feb/10 2nd dog

Horribly slopy and sharp edges, and still way above my grade i must admit. I apologise for the blood on the holds from the crux up!
