Rockfax Description
A traditional grovel. Sprint up the right-slanting layback, then swing right to the base of a wider section. Alternatively, take the jamming crack in the centre of the face - better. Improvise a way up the wide bit then step left for the easiest finish or go direct. © Rockfax

βeta: Not a particularly nice route and a bit of a grovel as the description states. Don't try to do this if it's rained the night before like I did. There'll be a small waterfall running down the crux moves.

βeta: Managed to get a dubious looking hex in the crack to protect the crux, fell on it 2 or 3 times, seemed to hold. Felt like HVS to me.

βeta: What a bitch struggle! Top half 'traditional' climbing in all of the WORST! senses of the word- probably easier in hob-nails and a nice thick tweed

βeta: Left hand variant can be protected without big gear, but very strenuous and sustained, seemed HVS, 5a to me.

βeta: I wish I'd read these comments before trying the route, so I could have done something else instead!

βeta: I sincerely doubt that many 'VS leaders' will get up this one. Dicey jams, not overly protectable with anything less than specialist big-crack gear and pretty butch and sustained (right-hand variation). Nice, if you like that sort of thing.
