Rockfax Description
Not as hard as the name might suggest. Climb past the ancient ironwork and on up the pleasant crack to the base of a shallow groove. Balance up this using holds on the left arete and some neat footwork - poor gear. A cop-out finish can be made up Soft Times at HVS 5b. © Rockfax

FA. Paul Nunn, R.Olliphant (1 pt) 1969.

βeta: I thought slightly easier than Bicycle Repair Man, but I think the top groove still warrants E1 (which is the grade give in On Peak Rock). Th number of pegs in the groove seems to vary - a long but relatively safe fall would be in the offing with none. P.S. Also better than BRM I think!

βeta: There are two pegs in the groove and at least one can be backed up.

βeta: I climbed this one again at the weekend. I must have been having a bad day when I made my previous comment. Top end HVS.

βeta: A very nice climb, some lovely crimps and delicate smears needed to get up the groove. A good E1?

βeta: Especially with the peg in place, I didn't think the top groove was too bad. Certainly not worth E1 IMO. Good route.

βeta: Great route, but the top groove definitely puts it up to E1 in my opinion. Without the peg in place I think E2 would be deserved.

βeta: The groove at the top felt a bit too tenuous for HVS.
