Rockfax Description
A long stamina-route that is one of the region's best. Move up to the overhang and negotiate it on the right before heading up the wall above to a corner with a good crack in it. Climb the corner and the left-trending groove above to a roof and swing right along the breaks until it is possible to pull up onto the headwall and finish rightwards. © Rockfax

βeta: One of the anchors came clean out yesterday (12th June) when engaged. The anchor was found and there was no apparent damage to it. Looks like it just came straight out and the resin failed :(

βeta: well i thought it was a awsome route and a prefect one to cruise definatly deserves the 6b+ because if ur not that strong theres a few moves abouve the crack which are hard but i realy dotn think its that pumpy as there are 2 realy decent rests deserves the stars

βeta: Easily one of the best routes in the area in this grade band. Interesting how some people find it harder and some easier. I thought it was a bit of a path for 6b+, but I did have the advantage of watched seen my mate on it first, so perhaps it just about justifies it.

βeta: Great route - sustained 6b to second last bolt then sting in the tail getting to and past the last. Quite hard (esp for short) and very committing!

βeta: feels about 6c....made the mistake of traversing to the left at the top overhang then watched someone cruise it by going straight up. there is an old bolt about 2m to the left and slightly down which can be clipped if toproping afterwards to reduce any potential swings.
