A fine and popular route up the impressive flake crack high on the face. It is the original route of the crag, put up in June 1977. The first pitch is a pleasant intro, but the flake on the second one is where it's at.</br>1) 4, 32m. Climb the wall just right of the groove with deviations to the left as and when needed. Belay by a tree.</br>2) 5, 30m. Climb cracks, then a short tricky wall to the layback flake. Go up this - easy but spooky - then continue to higher ledges and a choice of belays. Descend by abseil.
Second pitch felt really hard compared to other 5s on the crag. Gear a bit old now.
Brilliant route :)
Three star route, but bolts on the second pitch are becoming rusty
Second pitch put a big grin on my face when I got to the big ledge at the top, as it somehow feels much harder than it is. Well worth doing.
Fantastic must do route
great route with a fantastic final pitch.
A 3* route. The top pitch is a stunner.
Upper pitch is a stunning pitch and bang on the grade as well I'd say.
Excellent route, nice steady climbing on pitch one, but pitch 2 is really satisfying and a bit more demanding.
