Esmerelda* 7b+

Rockfax Description
Start under the widest part of the roof and follow the pillar to the break. Make a series of large spans (or powerful moves) between decent holds to a jug on the lip. Span left and climb the hanging groove (still very uphill) to the lower-off. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Steep line through the middle of the roof. Once over the roof move leftwards to finish up a short groove.
