Rockfax Description
This long and intricate route weaves a complex line up a steep wall. The climbing is sustained with plenty of hard moves interspersed with good rests, but it is thin on gear and high in the grade.
1) 4c, 21m. Climb a steep crack to a ledge. Follow the slim groove above, then easier ground back leftwards to a good stance.
2) 5a, 23m. A complex pitch. Climb a steep crack and wall to good ledges. Balance precariously right then pull up to the base of a scoop. Climb the groove above to a peg, then swing right to the arete for an airy exit. © Rockfax

βeta: Bold along trav, small wire but hard to see how good it is. Arete is brilliant.

βeta: The moves at the very top are inadequately protected by the peg and way, way harder than 5a. If you screw this section up you WILL deck on the ledge below. A climb for leaders with a grade or two in hand, only. Edit: a friend informs me that I’m an idiot and going direct at the end is wrong and I should have gone right to the arête. Y’know like it says in the guidebook.
