Rockfax Description
The long groove is climbed to the overhang. Pull through this and climb the wall just right via shallow groove. Good value! © ROCKFAX

Think I would have clean onsighted this if not having to get gear out.
tsl42 - 2nd O/S - 24/Aug/14 with Dan G

Brannock - Lead O/S - 24/Jul/14

Very sustained lower section. Moving to the right near the top felt more like 5c? took a while to work it out.
Guy Atkinson - 2nd β - 30/Jun/14 with Matt Tregellas

Hard HVS. Sustained lower down with one more tough move in the top section.

Awkward to stay out of Estremo at the top
Mr Wild - Lead O/S - 02/Jun/13

Jake Young - Lead O/S - 19/Aug/12 with Henry

Tough for HVS. Struggled to retrieve a walked-in friend low down and rested (and then needed both hands to get it out), but would have probably found this tough anyway - some sustained sequences of physical moves.
eduardo - 2nd dog - 11/Aug/12 with Ken Tranter

seemed tough in the sweltering heat, but good climbing and a more solid finish than Estremo :)
