Rockfax Description
A superb route which is easier than it appears but should not be underestimated. Climb the face right of the corner, then pull out left onto the slab. Climb and power through the bulge then traverse up right to a lower-off. © Rockfax

βeta: Bolt before pulling onto the top slab section loose. Needs tightening, nipped it up with my fingers.

βeta: Hard for the short. Wouldn't lead it. Only if I grew to 6 feet.

βeta: Not as wonderful as I expected from a starred climb. Just OK really. The HVS next to it has better climbing (although more wandering).

βeta: Agree with James Turnbull could be led on Trad gear, a shame its been bolted as would make a very nice HVS/E1 with a nice bold start and finish but well protected crux. I placed a cpl of bits of pro anyway cuz a cpl of the bolts look crap!

βeta: it gets 3 stars in the guide, the buldge is alot easier than it looks, wasnt going to mention the pocket, but too late. great route not even very hard for 6a i think. dont know why it got bolted cos could be lead well with lots of gear.
