Rockfax Description
A fine companion to First Blood but quite a bit harder with a beefy start thrown in. Start beneath a small projecting rock tongue below the horizontal break band. Climb up to the tongue then psyche up and pull leftwards, eventually arriving on a small ledge above the bulge. Climb up some cracks above, over a bulge, into an open groove. Follow this to a ledge then finish up the corner above. © Rockfax

βeta: Loose rock at the top of this one, be careful not to stand in the fall zone. As leader topped out 3 substantial blocks came down, fortunately belay glasses bought me enough time to get my most precious bits out of the way. Escaped with only minor injuries - chopper ride along the coast was quite splendid!

βeta: The block is pretty solid. Very good runners in the slots above. The route is definately not over once you have pulled over the initial steep section!

βeta: The block seemed pretty solid, plus you get in more gear just above it. Really good route, but the description seems to suggest it's about the same standard as 1st blood once you've done the start. it's not, pretty sustained until the groove we thought. Nearly 3 stars.

βeta: Think carefully before doing this route. I reckon that if the protruding block at the bottom snaps off when you pull on it you'd be killed or seriously hurt. It seemed fairly solid when I did it, but I won't be going back.
