Rockfax Description
Climb up the well-worn slab to the groove and first gear. Move up to reach the break, where more gear can be arranged - a skyhook is particularly good here! Mantel up and traverse the break to the first bolt on the route. Move past this with difficulty to reach the second bolt. Above this the climbing is easy, but you have to run it out a long way before you find the lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
a good line up the slab to the right of fools gold, solstice, equinox etc. Finishes just right of the clump of trees at the top of the slab. 2 bolts and a double bolt lower off. Start below the first bolt, move up and slightly rightwards to a tricky move at 5m to gain a good hand traverse leading left to the first bolt. A tricky move between the 2 bolts leads to the second bolt and, after a long run out, the top.

βeta: I found it tougher than knat attack. Straight forward if you head is good at run outs. After second bolt it’s around 10m to lower off. I went left near the top and that was a mistake so had a nervy couple of moves.
