Up the Styx, Without a Paddle** 7b

Rockfax Description
A tough little number on good rock. Start below a bolt-line on the left of the smooth bulging wall.
Thin face-moves up right are immediately followed by some hard moves up the short, steep wall to an easing above it. Move up right and climb direct to a large flake. Finish up the slab. © ROCKFAX

Good intricate climbing. Fingery low down, all on the feet in the top half. For me only two moves on stuck-on bits of scrittle, the rest seems solid enough.

belayed burton on his attempt so had an idea where to go, which seems half the challenge on this route as it weaves around. style suited me. really good technical climbing. hard, but no problems with loose holds.

the route is getting harder due to loss of holds , it now feels significantly tougher than last year when i last attempted it

Quite hard for the grade? Very loose above the mid-ledge. Nearly chopped off the belayer (and the dog's) head!
