Rockfax Description
The right-hand wall of the chimney starting up a thin crack and trending left towards the top. Escapable but with some good stretchy moves, especially the one off the undercut! © Rockfax

Great moves. .a twilight bonus to staking out a rainy Crowden.

Dan's 3rd E2 towards half colours. Bold for him on lead, but beautiful flowing moves for second

Fairly bold and committing, spent a while figuring out the beta, but once figured out the climb was great.

Painful pocket. A little soft for E2 though pretty sustained. All in all a good route but that arĂȘte gets tempting.

Really enjoyed this route. Well protected for E2 with the right gear but sustained enough to remain E2 I think. Would be 3 stars if it was more independent. Rarely climbed it seems but very worth a go with it's varied holds

Jumped off before the main difficulties due to problems with injusred finger and fear. Nicely sustained route, not sure I've ever been much more pumped on a route! Didn't feel as escapable as the book makes out.

This went, ok ish. Got well pumped at the top, psyching for the last long reach. Hardest part of this lead was not escaping leftwards when tempted to

Pre placed the gear. Scary last couple of metres above the last runner though. Well chuffed. Very reachy for me though. I reckon it might be 6a for shorties
