Rockfax Description
A superb traverse starting at the back of the cut-away on the left and following the break and sloping ledge (the true Hamper's Hang) rightwards. Curiously it is only f6C+ in reverse. © Rockfax

All the sheep poo has dried up in the sun. Makes a much nicer landing.

so grippy in the cold, by head torch after work. Did 1st attempt at the whole thing after getting the crux scoop crossing 2nd go, though had played on it previously. Pleased after climbing badly with the others a Burbage North earlier in the evening and struggling on a font 6b.

Did this right to left by accident, it just seemed a more logical line to do the sloper traverse first. Probably a but easier than the original, but pumpier, got it 3rd go

20 minutes to work sections out then first go on the link. Definition of classic.

really cool but with a sea of sheep shit at the bottom to give you added incentive not to fall off!

Started from flake jug. Think I've tried at least some of the moves a couple of years ago so retro punt really.
