UKC Logbook Description
Further to reports of loose rock and poor pegs, the line received some abseil inspection and tidy-up in summer 2021. P1 – At the end of the traverse, an unnecessary and poor-ish peg has been removed, the remaining one appears very solid (small cam backup and small wire in the vicinity). [P1 belay was upgraded to twin bolts a few years back]. P2 – the peg at the crux (with the tat), described as ‘dangerously poor’ back in 1995 still looks worrying 25 yrs. later (!), although it survived a light hammer check and carried body weight. It is still better not lobbed onto, so the recommended tactic is to make a very hard traverse (tech 6a/b) below it (as in Rockfax desc.), then to climb up (mini-wire backup high right, but hard to place). Above, two suspect flakes have been removed; this changes the post-crux climbing a little, but it is certainly no harder (the ugly rock scars will heal in time…) There is now a high peg to protect the excellent top-out moves.
