UKC

14m.

Rockfax Description
Steady climbing with a bold feel. Gear in the midway break gives protection that is just about adequate. Climb the reachy lower wall via a thin crack to ledges then attack the upper face by a line of (small) chipped holds. The route is substantially harder for the short. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The centre of the smooth face, taken very directly via chipped holds to finish. A long reach to the first of the twin breaks provides the technical crux, having patience and skill to fiddle in adequate gear in the upper break provides the adjectival crux. E2 with side-runners.

FA. Hank Pasquill 1967.

βeta: Richie, do you think the average 5b climber would need the gear if he hadn't previously top-roped the route? ;-)

βeta: Definitely E3, especially when it starts pissing it down on the last moves!
