Rockfax Description
14m. An easier route at last. Once a 'solid Northumbrian HVS', now upgraded. Follow the flake to its end and access the ledge on the right for a breather. Drop down off this then get pumping rightwards before you run out of steam - good gear but hard work. Finish up or down Angle Corner. © Rockfax

hetheringtom 26 Aug, 2019 Lead dog In which Reyer bullies me into trying something, forgets that I need micro cams, demands I downclimb, then I take a hefty swing anyway. I had a time, and would have a time again. Twin ropes essential.

Lord_ash2000 21 Jul, 2012 Lead O/S Gets HVS in the old guide I was using. Desprate for that grade. Pumpy, but awesome climbing, wish I'd have used the heal hook rather than dangling by one arm off that ledge with no gear in yet. 3 star route though!

allmag 24 Sep, 1988 Lead Quite 'pumpy'and awkward in places; helps if you like jamming (I do). Well protected with cams these days, in 1988 I only had hex's but they sufficed. It's no way E1, especially with cams! Solid HVS 5b though it was 'only' VS 5a in the 1979 guide! Seems to have been quite a lot of post hoc upgrading at Back Bowden in spite of all the improvements in gear.
