Rockfax Description
The face of the tower is climbed past an overlap early on with two thin sections and good runners in the main break. A great outing. © Rockfax

βeta: Sustained E3 5c, but an immaculate little route - certainly worth all it's stars. Splendid and tastily bold wall crimping that's quite unusual for grit.

Kipper-Phil Smith 17 Jul, 2016 Lead RP Total class just as good as the other classic grit e4s we have done this year. Top roped last week when damp. quick top rope today then went for the lead. Last move to the break and 3 welcome good runners is the crux. More hard moves to the final break and more decent runners.

will9911 14 Jul, 2016 Lead O/S Underrated route. Better than lots others at more popular crags. Hard moves before the gear but not too bad, little scary then good gear and moves after. Not the typical warncliffe landing either :)
