Rockfax Description
A fine route, tracing the easiest line up the shield. Immaculate rock, good protection and some brilliant technical sequences. Start lower than Original Route to help with rope drag. Move up left and follow the crack as for Tales... until the curving overlap on the right can be gained. Pull out right from this to a rest, then climb direct up a peg-scarred crack (polished) to a good hold. Wander more easily rightwards up the dinner-plate flake and finish direct from its end. © Rockfax

FA. Doug Scott, Clive Davies 1961. The upper flake was much more friable making their ascent terrifying. The route was jokingly renamed every time someone removed one of the aid points. Hook-Crook Wall (4 pts) and Bulldog Wall (1 rest) are both previous n

Misha u 13 May, 2017 Lead dog All went will until the crux, where I pinged off. Tried this 7 years ago but couldn't get over the overlap. This time bridged across and down to the good foothold and from there it turned out to be an easy reach to a juggy pocket. Got a wire in the pocket as well, so pretty safe piano playing across to the hands off rest. There was a guy on Supersonic who was taking a while so I waited for him but eventually he lowered off. Getting to the two pockets before the crux was fine. Did a cross through move to latch the pocket below the peg but the next move to the juggy flake looked hard, so I hesitated and tried to clip the draw (left by the Supersonic guy) but lost balance and fell off. Second go matched the pocket, threw for the jug and clipped from above. Great route! Didn't use cams larger than 0.4 but useful to have two 0.4s as one of them protects the crux.
