needs a pumpy symbol...

Very nice moves on the wall - great pocket-pulling!

Best route name on the island.

Dont' know about that, my personal favourite route name on the island is 'wierd shit, keep digging'.
Duncan - 29/Jul/05

...keep drilling!"

The line in the Rockfax guide for this route seems wrong. First, there are 2 lines of bolts and the line given goes up the middle of them, and second, it goes round the arete at a completely holdless point. TR in the end and it definitely deserves a pumpy if it's effectively up the crack on the face.

I'm pretty sure it's straight up the face on the crack and pockets... well pumpy..
Wilbur - 24/Apr/06

Thanks Ben but I'm sure I can improve, nothing better than insignificant little filler routes with overblown swaggering route names, ah the english way!

Really good route i thought. Soft touch for the grade. Varied climbing on good rock and i didnt think pumpy

As the Fax says onto the wall and up the arete, really nice climbing on varied rock and not so pumpy, 6a.

Nice route. Agree that the topo is slightly misleading, though the line is obvious once on the route.

Left, along or right of the bolts!? The guide says on the arete, but one cannot reach the bolts from tthe arete; not quite sure about this...
