Rockfax Description
One of the best bits of flowstone on Portland. Scramble easily to a high ledge to start, but gear up first. Climb the black wall to a series of incredible stuck on flakes, follow these to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Yes, very good route, 100% flowstone - approach is hardly like the one to Cloggy is it?

βeta: Fantastic route, glad i read the comments here first! I was also feeling defeated at the crux but had faith and got the flash! VERY worthwhile if you like flowstone that isn't polished (yet).

βeta: I'd say it's probably more straightforward approaching this from Blacknor South. It may still be worth wearing trousers as there are plenty of nettles and brambles about. Great climb on good quality flowstone.

βeta: You HAVE to do this route - it's a bit of an effort to get to but well worth it. Was chuffed with the onsight after contemplating failure on the crux! You can also then do Monsoon Malabar and Pregnant Pause for a quality day's climbing with no-one about...

βeta: One of the best bits of flowstone on Portland, only its inaccessibility prevents it from having queues on it. The hardest bits are leaving the belay ledge and pinching up the tufa pipe at the top; have faith, there are jugs above!
