Rockfax Description
A route with a good lower section but then it fizzles out. Climb the wall via couple of long reaches (big cam to the left) to easier terrain. As the wall gets ever-narrower make an escape. © Rockfax

Pretty straightforward moves lead to a shit break, above the small roof. Though moving up on top of the roof was the crux. Would be just about protected from a groundfall by bomber low gear in the pocket. Top is still spicy enough, depending on how much one stays on the face, but with better gear.

Don't know I even bothered trying this. Was still ruined from bloody limestone from the day before and just didn't feel ready to commit to anything hard.

Good route. Slopy breaks and tricky flared friend placements after technical slab and overhang. deck potential

This has Really good moves but not much of a line. I found it pretty tough for the grade but perhaps I missed something as the consensus seems to be that it's soft.

Lost track of the amount of times that I asked "would I deck from here?". Scarier and harder than Brown's Eliminate. Really enjoyed this. Classic grit knee trembler.

Slipped off an early move, lowered and climbed clean. Felt very stiff and glad to have been on the blunt end.

went right too early and then couldn't reverse so slumped on gear, then lead cleanly trying traversing higher.
