Rockfax Description
One of Stanage's choice VS climbs. From a boulder, pull up and left onto the slab, traverse left then move up and right to a resting ledge. Continuing up the centre of the slab trending slightly right. Well protected with enough cams, though it used to be very bold. © Rockfax

βeta: Fantastic, long, slopy, requiring good footwork and a couple of long reaches with some fairly run-out sections. Medium sized cams will help.

βeta: Enjoyed it up until it started chucking down with rain and I started losing traction, I ran it out about 20 foot just to get off the thing. Used cams and a hex I believe.

βeta: Great slab! nice and long, one of my first VSs. I used: 1 nut, 6 cams, and 2/3 tricams. There's a couple of marginal placements on there which scared me somewhat with the sideways pull of my slightly zig-zag route.

βeta: I did it without cams, just hexes and a wire. Little bit scary but more interesting than just plugging cams in.

βeta: You can place a whole rack of cams on this route from 0 to 4! Also at least 3 good hex placements. Fantastic route. Not too straight forward and keeps interest throughout. Amazing!
