UKC

40m.

Rockfax Description
A mind-blowing single pitch taking in the full height of the wall right of the Cave Routes. Climb the overhanging wide crack and narrowing groove with difficultly to a ledge and lower-off. Climb up the wall above to a small niche and move right and up before trending left to a lower-off. Move up to the large overhang and take the right-hand line of bolts to some wildly-positioned moves before the lower-off. Lower off in two stages if you don't have an 80m rope. It is also worth 7c+ if started up Last Dog. © Rockfax

βeta: First pitch (with Last Dog start) is just about 7c. If only 7b+, then Last Dog is 7a.

βeta: "Rope drag can be a problem" - if you were to climb it as two (or even three) pitches, what grade would the top pitch be in it's own right?

βeta: Following from Paul's comment, it felt like more than a '+' grade difference between Last Dog and finishing beneath the roof. Has the top pitch been climbed this year? How stable is it?

βeta: Even with the 'Last Dog', rather than the original start, it still felt like 7C to the first lower off. Way harder than the likes of 50 for 5 or Obsession.
