Rockfax Description
An excellent pitch. Climb onto a huge block just right of Pearly Gate, then head up and follow a groove just left of the half-height overhang. © Rockfax

βeta: Felt a bit tricky and exposed since this weekend was my first time outside since October! Think I may have missed some of the gear/holds referred to above... I went slightly right of the groove to more accommodating territory.

βeta: My first E1 lead. Have to confess I was expecting something a little bit harder - maybe I went the wrong way, the line seems to disappear a bit when you reach the top of the groove - I headed more or less straight up over the blocks to finish. Despite above comments a very worthwhile and quite technical route, probably the best I have done at Cattle Troughs.

βeta: Very enjoyable route. I think I developed tunnel vision because I found very little gear at and after the crux.
