The first of a great trio, although the lower wall is beginning to suffer from polish. Probably the most popular climb on the Cornice. Although the first wall has the hardest move, the top will sort out those lacking fitness.
FA. Gary Gibson 1983. Led without bolts by Nick Dixon 1984. Bolts gradually replaced over the years.


excellent warm up for the area. needs cleaning after seepage.

excellent route to check condition of crag and climber

similar to sardine on raven tor (not in terms of climbing!) in that it is the crag warm up. Hence all the good climbers have done it so many times they think it's really easy. Punters such as myself would probobly find it 7a

first two bolts looking very rusty at the moment -probably best to go carefully...

The big jug above the first overlap is also flexing so best not to use it to clip higher bolt above.

Bolt 3 is now missing, so I guess it's not really climbable just now.

Bolt 3 is back, apparently.
Jon Stewart - 27/May/11

Far too polished now to consider giving this 3 stars. If only I had been there in the 80s ...
