Rockfax Description
One of the best here, a tricky start leads to a fine finish up the open scoop - good footwork helps. © Rockfax

Well psyched to on-sight this. A tough start leads to sustained climbing throughout. Even to the very last move it feels precarious and very droppable. Brilliant route though.

3RP overall, forgot where to put my feet 2nd go but climbed the rest really nicely, then climbed it badly but cleanly !

Completely ballsed up the OS at around the 3rd clip, found this my anti style and psychological all the way. Really good route when you know what is required though, I think.

Felt like all the hard moves were with the bolt below your feet! Last most really annoying if you are short! But quite a satisfying route, clean next time.

Awesome!!! Hard, sustained and serious feeling, if actually completely safe. Not got enough experience at the grade to comment on its relative difficulty but I was definitely glad the crux was at the bottom as I barely had enough juice left to do the easy(ish) moves to the lower off.

Tried this a few years ago & was unable to get past the second bolt so it was good to get to the top this time. Would need a few more goes to get it clean though.

Two falls by 2nd bolt, but did it clean in the end, and could barely see anything by the end - tricky when good footwork required

Not being much of a fan of Horseshoe this climb was a very pleasant surprise. Continuously technical climbing is thankfully broken up with good rests. A very good route.
