Rockfax Description
An excellent and exciting route crossing the wide smooth wall - not a place for wobblers. From a grassy ledge, climb the steep slab just left of the corner to the start of a narrow ledge system. A delicate foot-traverse leads out left until better holds can be followed directly to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: The line in the old eastern grit is wrong. It ends the traverse and goes up too soon. It’s quite obvious when you’re there, just follow the ramp and the feet are worn out

βeta: Lovely route, added a bit of spice to it by forgetting my climbing shoes and leading it in trainers!

βeta: i thought the gear on this was fine(no less than any other vs). to be honest i think there are much better routes than this on plantation.

βeta: A most enjoyable delicate route. There is however a good deal more runners than the grade & route description might suggest. The traverse has an 'interesting' hold about half way along to keep you honnest though...
