Rockfax Description
A contender for the best outing on grit! Sprint up the layback flakes trending right to a rest on jams at a break. Before courage and power flag more laybacking leads to unobvious jug-hauling and an ungainly rest in a niche. Escape out right awkwardly (rounded hand-traverse or ungainly grovel, using holds in the roof) to finish up a wide crack. A brilliant belay is located above. © Rockfax

FA. Joe Brown 1956.

βeta: A proper mission, but managed to get the clean on-sight. If you like steep climbing, you'll be fine. Its the traverse at the end that had me stumped for a while, but you can keep going back to the cave for proper rests until you get it.

βeta: Simply splendid. There is easy-to-place gear everywhere, a few interesting rests, and no move is much harder than 5a....but despite all that the side-view of the angle tells you all you need to know ;).

βeta: I write this as another young(ish) pretender humbled by The "Mighty" (Tommy Vance voiceover) Rasp. To onsight this stonking chunderpump you'd have to be VERY comfortable at E2. I found that alot of the holds weren't that great, being rather open-handed. Ah well, another one to go back to :(
