Special K* E4 6a

Rockfax Description
Another scary route suffering from a chronic lack of attention. The initial wall and bulge has poor gear. Above that it is around E2 5c. Cross Armageddon and climb direct until forced into Windhover by the ivy. © ROCKFAX

Hidden - Lead O/S - 06/Aug/98

A worrying start. A 0.5 friend seems to hold when pulled but dont test it properly. Committing moves gain the superb upper wall
