Rockfax Description
A fine but devious pitch - care with rope-work is required. Climb the chimney to an awkward traverse left under the roof. Gain the groove awkwardly and climb it to a step right. Pull over a bulge then trend left past the arete to the juggy north-facing wall. © Rockfax

A good effort from Charles only to fall from the last move on easy ground. Lucky to get away with a head scratch. Masaki re-led through the Arete. 2nded the whole thing: technical feet on undercuts in the roof. Good balance/friction needed to get through the corner crack.

Quality route though for me not worth 3 stars (okay, 2). Its all about the first half of the traverse, which I fell off at the first attempt. Gears good, so not too stressful and got it second go. Definitely harder for us small people. Gets progressively easier after that.

Cool but I think the latest eastern grit has it a bit wrong the hand traverse was cool then I went straight up the groove and stepped right at the top of the arete whereas the latest eastern grit has you step out right at the bass of the groove. Finished straight up the face with a tricky mantel on the roof cool route. Lots of variation the traverse was fun and enjoyed finding the holds.

Lovely climb. Beginning the traverse was committing but turned out fine. Put a nice high nut in the groove before relaising I needed that slot for my hand. A cam behind the flake at the end of the traverse was bomber, but a little low for my liking. The groove turned out to be nice and awkward. Not sure the finish was as juggy as the book made out.

The last route on my Wishlist that I wanted to climb before the birth of my baby. It did not disappoint. Took a long time setting up gear at the start of the traverse that would allow me to later flick the rope over the roof to minimise drag. Traverse was fun with an interesting "crimp-jam" used for the right hand to get started. Foot friction is good and the holds soon improve. Got 2 good cams in on the other rope beneath the groove. Then managed a hands free rest to contemplate an apparently unfeasible move up which turns out to work very well - classic !
