Rockfax Description
An all-time favourite of the area that pleases time after time. Start by the bad step in the ledge, and follow the thin crack past a rusty peg to an easing. The appealing, smooth-looking wall on the right is taken intricately to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Totally overrated and escapable line - I do not understand how anyone could give this 3 stars...

βeta: Also went too far right then back left but thats probably my poor guidebook reading skills.

βeta: It's a bit tricky reading the line from the guide book - assumed it was the continuation of the obvious crack line. But that leads onto the neighbouring E2 climb. So my interesting variation went as far as the big Jug on Grandpas Groove then take the crackline going left. Technically harder but better protected. - I guess I'm not the first to make that mistake.

βeta: This route is about the only justification for visiting Subluminal. A real gem amongst the choss.

βeta: lovely all the way: don't hang about on the first crack, there's plenty of time to savour the route higher up
