Rockfax Description
One of the West Country's great sport-routes. Low in the grade, but very pumpy and a touch polished. Start beneath a pocketed weakness.
Move up the weakness on good pockets and then swing right to good jams in the horizontal break at 6m. Make a hard move to a good pocket then lurch up the wall, first leftwards and then back right to a final heave onto easier ground. © Rockfax

FA. Nick White, Pete Bull, Andy Turner 3.88 Mar/1988.

βeta: Might have been solid 7b before the polish. Easily 7b+ now in my opinion. Well worth doing though!

βeta: An awesome route. Good holds when you need them, but still best done rapidly.

βeta: Bring your biggest guns and a LOT of ammo - this puppy's a pumper. Solid for 7b.

βeta: I'd like to add, I don't think a photo-topo works very well for this wall, where much of it is obscured, or for the ferocity wall either, where the routes are identified by subtle features. The old line-topos in the old guide were much better.

βeta: mega, mega, mega. Sprint up the leaning wall with nicely spaced bolts. A clipstick takes the sting out of the start in these soft modern times...
