Rockfax Description
A tricky pitch that is bolder since the micro wire placements have blown out. It can be split at the flakes/ledges at half-height. Start by some ledges just before the scree, below a vague rib. Ascend the rib to a shattered crack, get in as much gear as possible because there isn't much more! Carry on up the shattered crack until the climbing gets hard and a foothold can be seen out left. Make a very committing move left onto the foothold, after which good holds lead to the broken ledges. Take the right-hand line of two bolts, passing the second via a tricky move out of the letter-box - crux. Above, easier but bold climbing leads up and right to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Some misleading info about for this route, such as 'the micro wire placements have blown out', which made me put it off for years. It seems unlikely that anything has changed, either way its still E5.
