Rockfax Description
Start below the centre of the slab and take the right-trending line of polished holds that steepen as they rise. Escape off right under the Bel Ami tower. Originally the route finished up the groove left of the tower (about 4b ) but this contains a suspect flake and is best avoided. © Rockfax

βeta: Top pitch "suspect flake" broken off a couple of years ago, now tough little problem to finish off otherwise easy route - probably 5a move!

βeta: Dodgy flake in the upper section now broken and gone. Original upper corner can now by climbed but much more difficult than Severe. Needs a big cam to protect it.

βeta: HVD in the definitive and that feels about right. A nice route.

βeta: I think the flake on the second half of the route is quite dangerous and liable to come off sometime soon - it moved noticably when I pulled on it (just before retreating rapidly!) The first part (ie the original route) is quite awkward for the grade and felt more like HS 4a (good gear but it's below your feet on the crux)

βeta: Seemed an easy route but not so fun when it starts to rain halfway up the initial slab! My second twice slid off the second half of the route....
