Rockfax Description
Climb the pleasant crack to the bulges and lace it with gear. Then pull up and right to find tricky-to-place runners and one more balancy move to reach easy ground. © Rockfax

βeta: I didn't bother with the hard-to-place runner as the ones underneath were good and you can get at least one half-decent nut once you're through the crux. The top section is still a little tricky. I reckon it's soft E2 but the crux is 5c.

βeta: Great route. Didn't think this was particularly reachy and I'm 5'8''. Managed to get gear in after the crux so didn't find it bold

βeta: A full grade easier than Cathy's Clown, with a bivvy ledge to go for post-crux. E2 5b, if that.

βeta: One well protected tricky move followed by an easier but bolder couple of moves lead to an exciting mantel onto a grassy ledge before the top is reached. Quite good route.
