The long, shallow, leaning groove that forms the direct on Rigid Digit is arduous and superb as well as being one of the very best lines anywhere on grit. Small wires protect throughout but it is a good idea to place a solid runner early on to avoid them unzipping in the (inevitable?) event of a fall. © ROCKFAX
