The mid-height bulge gives food for thought, but keep something in reserve for the last move.

Deffo at least 5+, possibly 6a. Worth a star.
Al Evans - 18/Jun/01

Steady 5 all the way untill a reachy move to finish at about 5+.
Ewan - 05/Aug/01

Strange, I thought the finish was ok, crux was the small overhsang at half height?
Al Evans - 23/Jun/03

Felt harder than 5 especially the overhange just above half height. Very enjoyable route
Richard Davison - 16/Jul/03

Consistant 5 with a tricky long arm finnish, cracking route
Chris Murnin - 23/Apr/04

The move at the bulge just above half height is the tricky one. A good 5!
Henry - 06/Jun/04

Small overhang at half height felt like 6a+ to me. Has it lost a hold? Or am I a weak punter?
Matt_b - 30/Jul/04

I think this is 6a.
Brian Wilkinson - 10/Mar/05

Good fun, but the crux is tough for 5
John Alcock - 19/Sep/05

For me the crux was the bulge about 2/3 up - a good flint grip top right to latch onto allowed me to rock over succesfully. There were no shortage of good grips throughout the climb albeit a little sharp on some of the flint. Top section was more unnerving because of the commitment to layback on the left hand flake. I liked.

Wouldn't say it was 6a as there's only really that one tough 5+ crux move on the mid-bulge; get the feet up and reach up right and there's enough chert to gain the ledge. It's also well bolted so even if you drop on the crux, you're not going very far. Top section has a nice finger crack.

Probably F6a

Steve pulled off a large head-sized flake from between the 1st and 2nd bolts. Doesn't alter the grade. We top-roped a nice new climb to the right that's probably about the same grade, albeit slightly less cruxy and slightly more sustained.

The route to the right of Inception is The Screwfix Escort Agency and is 6a with a tricky headwall.
Brian Wilkinson - 15/Jul/08

Sustained, steep, juggy and good fun all the way.
