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

Went over with the intention of headpointing this - between the humidity, the dirty holds, and being a bit shit I was happy to work it and eventually do it clean on toprope . Great climbing, and very keen to lead at some point.

Class route

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.

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 :)

Good route. Climbing in Northumberland makes everything here seem soft!

Bottom move seems very stiff and unprotected or it may have just been me miss reading it and it been a little dirty.

Climbed in terrible style with pre-practice accompanied by pre-placed & pre-clipped gear in the sweaty July rain.

Nearly flashed, hand was greasing off on the first bold crux to the break so grabbed runner. Too hot but will go next time.
