Rockfax Description
Devious. Starting at a soft orange thread at the centre of the wall trend right to a square block. Step left and power over the bulge to below the big roof. Traverse away left until past the end of the roof and pull onto the slab for an easy finish, trending right. © Rockfax

cool overhanging and juggy gritstone, though wet/green conditions and a thick coating of bird shit made the ascent quite unpleasant

Very dirty! Some pretty steep moves over the bulge then I made a huge mess and got stuck head first in then hole which took a while to sort out. Then nice climbing to the top. I potentially pulled on to slab a bit too late.

Got pumped out working out the tricky move, but then had a nice sit down rest on the block.

What a nightmare...just couldn't do the bulge under the overhang before the traverse...too pumped and arms too short :-( had to be lowered off and then Alex had to downclimb to retrieve the gear. Humph! Dammit!

Absolute Quality - Two cruxes - Steeply overhanging pull before long traverse and moving onto slab after. Not sure if made it harder by pulling onto slab too early. Best route I've lead yet!

one burly move up to the ledge. A bit awkward to protect, but the moves are reasonable.
