Rockfax Description
Stride across the smelly toilet-pit then follow the curving flake out right to a poor rest and tricky moves to grasp the bounteous flutings. Making sure the ropes don't jam, finish easily. © Rockfax

Pretty hard, and heart wasn't really in it. Had a rest halfway. Quite a nice move getting round the corner. Next time might be better to save the blue cam for half way up.

Harder than it looked!

Intimidating but the climbing was actually ok, can be laced with gear if your arms are up to it.

great pumpy climb; it started spitting and I found I was too nervous when placing the gear, so down climbed, shook-out and then finished it off. my second said it was worth the stars and really loved moves. "IF" it was lower it would be an easy boulder problem!

Possibly the only HVS and above route I've managed to onsight at Curbar. Low in the grade by crag standards, though harder than Maupassant.

whole route felt pretty outragous for the grade, bottled move across, but got it second go, then had a bit of a moment getting gear in for final moves.
