A little gem. Climb up through the low bulge, and follow the open corner to the final, short wall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
On the Lower Tier. The central groove to the right of Round the Bend. Fun moves and generously bolted.

I went the wrong way on the overhang near the beginning of the route. Instead of heading to the flake at the left of the bolt I was shuffling my hands right looking for better holds!

jennifers87 30/Jun/12 Lead dog

Had a bit of an epic on this route, which is disappointing. Had a panic attack mid climb as I was shuffling along on the right of the initial bulge and couldn't find a decent hold etc. Tried to do the same move about 4-5 times, where I also fell off. Ended up bawling through the rest of the climb. Haven't had an experience like that before, as I'm generally a pretty calm climber and try to sort through what I can't do straight away

Techinical, delicate and balancy - beautiful route. First outdoor 6a onsight.
