Rockfax Description
From the tip of the tombstone, make a baffling (6a until sussed?) step round left into the shallow groove which takes small wires that are tricky to place. The groove and steep jamming crack above lead to ledges. Traverse out left and climb the wall to finish. © Rockfax

On Fabrizio's gear, plus the extra couple of pieces I took to make top less run out.

Seconded to save time, but was probably harder to second than flash as the gear was really awkward to get out! Nice climbing. Top harder than the bottom.

Same problem as my attempt a long way back - did the tricky start and then messed up the steep crack. Got further than last time though. The very top shift leftwards (after the main event) is pretty horrible and feels unnecessarily tacked on. Didn't bother doing it.

Annoyed with this one, got the crux clean then fluffed the top!

Tricky wee thing! Spent ages fiddling gear in at the start. Flows well after that.
