Climb the thin crack (third from the right) to a steep thrilling finish. Beware the big wobbly spike on the right before the crux.


Spoilt by the finish, which is too escapable.

Yeah, I stepped out right onto the top ledge of the HS next at the finish, only realised afterwards that you need to keep central. This does spoil the route.

It's simple don't step right at the top you don't need too. Stay central and it's a pumpy 5a until you're over the top.

get the top moves right cos they make the climb , jug tastic and a cheeky mantle.

If you use the foothold on the right it's a bit disappointing and if you don't it's an eliminate, you might as well be at the climbing wall

I loved it and actually felt the obvious line was simply to keep on going up (through the slightly overhanging bulges). A fantastic finish to a nice climb. "Exciting" without being scary - good pro just before you go for the finishing moves. If you wimp out rightwards, well, that's because you wimp out! Not an eliminate, a good clean line.

Standard. Pretty obvious where to go.
Fiend - 05/Dec/03

Maybe a soft touch, but a worthwhile route, just follow the good holds... Bomber large wire for the top moves, on you go!

I think the line shown in Rockfax is the harder alternative finish described in the new Stanage guide. I'd have a lot less grit rash had I not followed it!
