Rockfax Description
A little gem that is low in the grade and has a cunning finish. The moves flow nicely and the rock is excellent. © Rockfax

βeta: nices climb i have done as a 6a. was such a flowing climb although easy for a 6a. mantle at the top was a little tricky but nothing to challenging.

βeta: ended up lunging over the ledge at the top after not spotting the cunning finish...probably made it a solid 6a rather than soft - great route though, nice moves, no crux but several interesting moves to make

βeta: The rock isn't excellent at the bottom - i managed to rip a hold off the size of a dinner plate, narrowly missing my belayer. Stayed on it though for the onsight! Tricky top makes it fair 6a i thought. Laughed my ass off watching my mate do a belly flop onto the ledge after completley missing the 'cunning finish' :o)

βeta: What a lovely route! I'd give it three stars, but then that would attract traffic so two is fine ;-) I onsighted it clean so it's definately no harder than easy 6a. The finish throws you if you're not expecting it.

βeta: Classic route, climbed it with a sprained ankle, (found out later). Felt in the 5+ range, just real positive. Great ledge at top to stand and contemplate life, does anyone else know of another ledge like it?
