Rockfax Description
A stunning climb taking on the massive slab.
1) 27m, 4+. Move up to the high first bolt and continue past a steepening to easier ground and a stance with a lower-off.
2) 25m, 5+. Climb up the wall and take the last section past the final two bolts well to their right. © Rockfax

Very run-out first pitch (4 bolts in 25 metres) and hard second pitch for the grade - clipping the last bolt v tricky.

Might get down on rope stretch on an 80m, but you can do it on a dozen quickdraws. One densely bolted section, otherwise quite run out!

Missed one clip on 2nd pitch as poorly bolted and clipping it would have ended up being the crux!

Bolts on first pitch are miles apart, 27m with 4 bolts??? Finish is confusing with bolt positions. Rockfax book says finish way right of the bolts but you can also traverse left on to the second to last bolt and finish direct(5+ - 6a)

Very sparse bolting on first pitch, 4 bolts! 2nd pitch doesn't live upto the guide book due to poor bolting.
