Restricted Access

The owners of this site have errected signs stating "no climbing" and there is a history of bolts being damaged by contractors acting for the landowners to discourage climbing. The main concerns from the owners is the potential civil liability that may arise from climbing at the site. BMC are currently in negotiations with agents acting for the owners to secure an access agreement. Please report any incidents or altercations to the BMC but also be prepared to be asked to leave if representatives of the owners are present.

Rockfax Description
The leaning headwall is superb. Difficulties increase as height is gained, particularly after the large mid-height pocket. © Rockfax

βeta: Quite a soft little tick at 7a but who's counting? We had fun, it's a good route, it's definitely not an easy route, and I recommend it. I was a bit surprised something with that much glue on a hold would make it to top 50, shoddy workmanship, wouldn't have them cowboys in my house

βeta: This route is definitely not soft if you are short! I can see why it's 6c if you are a normal height though.

βeta: I think it's true to a 7a grade. Raw deal in cheddar is easier, Slytherin in Gilwern is easier both are 7a this deserves its grade.
