Rockfax Description
The true finish is short, sharp and well protected but still manages to feel scary. Head slightly right from the runner slot precariously on holds that invariably disappoint. © Rockfax

Excellent, abseiled the line first to give a quick brush and felt the holds.

One of those that feels straightforward when seconding. The crux was possibly getting over the overhang on Vibrio! Nice moves on the headwall but 5c rather than 6a.

Wasn't too bad, but I couldn't quite reach far enough on the crux and then couldn't reach the top!

Inspired by pic in climbing guide. Surprisingly reasonable for grit 6a.
