Rockfax Description
A brilliant line with three distinct difficult sections. Climb up and right, passing two bolts to a jug, and the third bolt. Then move back left and up to the fourth bolt. There is a sling placement if you want it where it crosses Last Chance For a Slow Dance, then past the fifth bolt to the double lower-off. © Rockfax

myrddinmuse 23 Aug, 2019 Lead RP Dogged up it, trying to figure out the sequence past wet holds, and then sent on the second go thanks to some encouragement from James! This feels like a real genuine 7a, especially if you're short (like me). Amazingly hard last rockover onto that right hand foothold with wet sidepulls above! Chuffed!

Dan Hale 30 Jan, 2014 Lead RP Stupidly fell off a few feet above the ground on my first go due to wet feet. Felt pretty easy the second time; more like 6c+ or 6c compared to most slate F7a's I've done. Brilliant route :)

mynyddresident 1 Jun, 2011 Lead RP Once on a top rope, then lead . A very good route with fun moves. The tricky start is followed by great moves around the groove and also near the top.
