Rockfax Description
Start by a low overhang and an iron ring on the ground. There is a difficult opening move over the roof. The wall above is still tricky. It may be a poor relation to its Swanage namesake, but it is not a bad route at all. © Rockfax

βeta: It's a perfectly OK route....the first move is massive if you're tiny (I'm not but my partner was). There is an option just to traverse from the right to avoid the crazy size of the first move.

βeta: I'm just tall enough to reach the good holds and immensely enjoyed hauling myself up with no technique at all with the rope above me :) Starting a metre or so left like my leader did looked a lot more sensible, but less like silly fun.

βeta: First move more like 5+/6a - but only if you are tall and can reach the edge of the ledge - if below 5'6" then it is very much harder.
