Rockfax Description
The shallow corner has an unhelpful set of sloping, slippery holds and great gear. The upper half is a doddle. Oddly there are easier 5b moves out there! © Rockfax

βeta: Went up this one yesterday evening after a fine afternoon of climbering. The start is a bit tricky, but very worthwhile. I find these problems a bit peculiar because you top out half way up but still have to do the rest of it.

βeta: I liked this one a lot. I found the start bloody hard, but thats the point - isn't it? After the hard start it's a nice relaxed climb but...at the top should you step right around the upper block or continue up on the arete?? Also while I was doing this climb a guy soloed 'downhill racer' - very inspiring, I remember looking across and thinking 'what the hell is he standing on?'

βeta: The first 10' of this route are plain blood awkward ! Don't expect to cruise it if its remotely damp.

βeta: A bit slippy for a solo... the first few moves being the worst though. I didn't think that this route justified any stars. Yeah, it's quite nice but nothing special. Especially with all the polish.

βeta: Anyone tried the boulder problem up the arete right of this route? It's quite hard, especially with polished footholds. Anyone know the grade?
