A fine sustained pitch. Climb past a roof and trend left to the fault-line. Continue to another roof, then climb over and right up a flake to a further roof. Finish up a long flake.

Great climbing in an amazing position. Steep, technical and strenuous wall climbing at its best. Very good rock for Swanage with adequate though hard won protection (hint-BIG cam for the fault). The start will be a bit harder for those less than 6' (as per usual).

Did this on Saturday. I'm about 5'10" and didn't find it at all reachy. On Rich's advice above I took a camalots 5 for the break and used it but it's not necessary as there is also a gold camalots placement and good gear just above the break.
Great route that has a few rests in between some tough moves. Gear felt quite ample too. Probably more hard moves than wall of the world's but with better rests in between.
