Rockfax Description
The flake and narrowing crack (laybacking or jamming, it is your call) leads to ledges (possible stance). Continue up the crusty arete of the squat tower and a real summit tick. © Rockfax

βeta: Looks quite intimidating for the grade hence why i fannied about with gear for ages and had to step back down for a rest,once you go for it it isn't that hard, very nice bottom bit, agree that top is a bit artificial.

βeta: Great route, shame I spent so long protecting the 4m layback that I got all tired, until I booted my best piece out and scampered to the top of that part with fear and adrenaline.

βeta: An easy overratted route if tackled with aggression.The topout is VERY exposed but excellent fun! GO FOR IT!

βeta: for those about to layback we salute you...follow this with Maupassant and Insanity to cure (or not) all laybackophobes.

βeta: I found it much harder than it looked, and not at all easy for the grade! Maybe that just says something about the sort of climbing I'm best at, ie slabs not laybacking :-) The top half was much easier (4a?) and a bit artificial in avoiding stepping onto the big ledge on the right, hence not 3 stars.
