UKC

Rockfax Description
A true sandstone classic. Latch the first juggy break and reach for the second one. Swing out and traverse left to reach up and eventually mantel onto the 'Luncheon Shelf'. Finish up the right side of the nose, known as Nose Finish. Photo on page 193. Big Air, f7C or 8a+ if top-roping. Dyno from the first to second break. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Gain the shelf from the obvious slanting jug on the right. Hand traverse out to the widest point (being careful not to snag your rope under the break as you traverse) and gain the Luncheon shelf. Finish up the wall above via a pothole.

βeta: Definitely a serious highball if climbing as a boulder as in Boulder Britain, backed off before the ledge due to lack of pads - class climbing

βeta: HELMET RECOMENDED / POTENTIAL FOR GROUND FALL ON THIS ROUTE: Be extra careful to keep your rope above you as you traverse left on the second break and move into the mantle. The rope can easily get looped under the break and not spotted, as the attention is on campussing left, resulting in a potential ground fall if you come off at this tricky section. Take extra care as at this point of the climb you can easily become inverted if you fall with the rope below you meaning a ground fall onto your head. Helmet highly recommended for this route.
