Rockfax Description
Engaging technical climbing. Intense moves up the groove and side-pulls to its left gain better holds. Now head up left past overlaps until a final move right with feet on the edge of the final overhang gains a lower-off © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
An impressive looking outing that scales the full height of the cliff. An astonishing multitude of jugs makes this suprisingly simple for its grade. Start 4 metres right of the huge, full-height, vegetated corner. Climb the initial flake and an interesting technical groove (crux) and at its top swing out right on to the right arĂȘte. Step up onto a big ledge, and then onto another, just up to the left (intermediate abseil station). Avoid contact with the suspect flake immediately in front by stepping left and pulling up on good edges (next bolt runner is out right). Continue steeply on large edges to a pleasant rest in the big orange scoop and finish with unexpected ease stepping out right onto the lip of the bulge. Abseil station just above. The bottom groove was climbed by T Penning, S Pickett in 2006 at HVS and called Moving On. The extended, bolted version, as now described by G A Jenkin, C James, Miss Y Jones (all led), C Connern

βeta: Big loose block neat third bolt. Not very enjoyable. Lots and lots of loose rock.

βeta: Not that loose - just a couple of small blocks, though it certainly looks disconcerting.

βeta: Quite a few loose blocks and lots sounded hollow. Be really careful and don\'t use the loose blocks.

βeta: Be aware of some VERY loose rock. Wear a helmet. Route is perfect possible without using the loose rock! :)
