A big pitch that is worth seeking out as a first sample of the harder routes hereabouts. Start 6m right of the tunnel.

A direct line at the crux, avoiding the jugs on the left and using a powerful gaston, makes this route slightly harder and much more exciting.

The route is every bit as good as England's Dreaming or other 3-star 7a+s on Portland. The rock quality is excellent and the climbing is really funky. One of the best routes I've done in ages.

Agreed Darren this is an excellent route, short crux but right up there with ED, VF, PH, etc... :)

See warning about Drowning on Dry Land. Rocket from the Crypt is still there, but the area around the start may be unsafe
