Start just right of the arete and climb delicately, passing the right-hand edge of a thin overlap. From the ledge, climb a short crack, a wall and the final roof centrally. © Rockfax

Filthy, damp holds, high humidity and a million midges! Also last route of a long day. So... pleased to hang in and onsight this. If clean it would be a good route as the moves are actually varied and interesting. Good, clean second by Lynn. We've never climbed so fast in our desire to escape the midges!

Would have really enjoyed this i think if not for being midged to death all the way up!! also quite dirty and greasy so another fab lead by Christy ! very pleased to get it clean as very tired at the end of another fab day. Fun moves gett`ing over the roof at the end.

Awesome move through the roof, finally worked it out with a nice foot jam under it to hold me on while I got the second hand up :D

A big reach will lead to satisfaction. I started for the HS and traversed from the right to make things more interesting.

After hunting around for the reach, finally found it - further left than I thought. Easy when you know how, and good gear.

Having spent 30 mins trying to get over the top roof, gave up and traversed off. Must have missed a trick I think

Reaver2k 26/Apr/09 Lead O/S

My first E1 lead! Whoop! Scary slab moves, felt a lot like the situation I was in on sunset slab, but without the bomber slider... Had a hurrendously poor cam in, which wouldnt have held body weight, but you never know... Found the moves a bit sketchy, but mostly just because I was scared. From this up to the roof is also suprisingly hard! Once at the roof, laced it with a couple of cams and tried to work out a way of getting over the top before getting pumped! Reached over, found a crimp, figured there must be something better, reached again, just the crimp again. Eventually decided to commit holding the crimp and hanging on it whilst leaning out and reaching up. Worked fine if a bit strenuous. Then have to somehow get feet over the lip which I found the hardest bit, had to get them almost by my face and push up and over! Great feeling!
