The cracks and groove lead to a lower-off.
FA. Gary Gibson 1998


Would be improved by having its own lower off - the moves left are rather unpleasant.

There is a route to the right of this called the Last Straw 6b.
Gary Gibson - 14/Mar/02

I agree, a lower off would be a very helpful, spoils an otherwise nice route.

The Rockfax guide shows a lower-off but when you get there it's not there. We finished by going diagonally across to finish up Last Straw - still F6a.

There is a serious error in the Rockfax guide. But this could have serious issues. Today at the crag three sperate parties followed the Rockfax guide and ended up in the middle of nowhere looking for the belay: this is dangerous terrain and needs careful handling of the rock as well as trad. gear. The route has always gone left from the fifth bolt runner to the belay of Power of Soul. This needs identifying.

Now has its own lower off

This was the oddity of making the route fit the wrongly described route. The belay was on Power of Soul but Rockfax got it wrong.

It's a new concept, making the route fit the description?
