Rockfax Description
The easiest line on the wall, but still solid at the grade. Start as for Cabbage, or harder and more directly, up the wall to the right to gain the hanging groove. The last heave into the groove is hard, but once established you can bridge out for a breather. Finish straight up. © Rockfax

Pretty chuffed with this. Found the crux pull steady but got fairly pumped in the groove above.

lowered off crux o/s go baffled, watched Ben do it then went through on second attempt, stiff crux. Also brilliant, very rich history behind it too.
