Rockfax Description
A delightful route, friendly, well-bolted and sustained, but never desperate. It is also sheltered from the wind. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Now the ground under these routes has stabilises a bit. It is now possible to gain the lower base of this route. 3 extra bolts have now been placed making this route climbable again. The lower part is still very dirty and will need cleaning to restore this climb back to a Battleship classic.

βeta: The line in the guidebook is wrong (too far to the left) good route, though. polish is not that bad. Felt tough for the grade but think 6a is fair.

βeta: did the route yesterday and thought it was sustained and excellent - a little run out at the top. The picture in the guide book is printed with this route and the next 4 displaced to the left -why is the obvious central groove line not stapled - surely a bolted area is a bolted area !

βeta: Ian - i think the line in the rockfax might be a bit out from memory? NDACWYD is the line right in the gully/lowest point, and the first bolt is pretty high..

βeta: Given that this route is one of only a couple of warm up routes at Battleship it is bound to get a bit polished, but I agree with Wilbur it is not that bad and it is still F6a.
