UKC

Rockfax Description
A hard route with a steep start and a great second pitch.
1) 5b, 12m. Climb up to the shattered overhanging groove. Pulling around to the belay is much more problematic than it first appears and may well shatter some leaders' nerves.
2) 5c, 30m. Move right and climb the superb technical wall via a thin crack to an overlap. Pull around this and then head up right to a ledge near the arete. Committing moves up a crack lead back left through a bulge to easier ground above. Continue more easily to the large flake stance of Spectre.
3) and 4) As for Spectre. © Rockfax

βeta: Pulled a 20x30cm ish block off just over the lip of the overhang P1, landed on/through my TX4 on the floor which resulted in a trip to V12. I don't think it makes it any harder, went fine 2nd go. Cleaned out most of the mud that was holding it on.

βeta: Abseil tat is looking tired. Maybe bring some old rope along to refresh it since the crux can be hard to clean on second and is difficult to abseil into from any of the other ab points.
