Rockfax Description
The crack just right of the arete leads to a non-rest at the overhang. Progress from here requires some sustained and painful jamming and usually stops most folks dead in their tracks, though the strong can layback straight through it. © Rockfax

After a false start trying to get off the deck - on first acquaintances it's not obvious - I was pleased to battle up to the roof falling moving over it. Had two more goes getting a bit higher but still unsure what to do to get those jugs! Will Defo head back it's a great route!

SO hard! I guess I learnt a lesson about Curbar grading the hard way, but I'm pleased to have flashed up to the roof and taken a few falls, I'm looking forward to coming back better!

Could not figure out the move to get into the cracks above the roof. Too short? (5'3")

Finally. Key is to put your right foot up and push off the other side of the crack....

Got up to 'non-rest' ok and was quite dissapointed at how poor it actually was. Then was predictably spat out of the jamming crack without it even having chance to draw blood.
