16m. Follow the steep wall to the weakness through the right end of the large roof. The crux is on the bottom wall but many fall off from high up (hence the name) so remember to milk the mid-height rest. © ROCKFAX

2 working goes then 3 failed redpoints, felt close on one go, should go when fresh.

In a session, really amazing moves, one of the best I've done at the grade. Cheers to Mark for the cleaning, now rebolted courtesy of Peak Bolt Fund.

Two dogged ascents to work the moves. Got them all reasonably sussed no and think it has a good chance of going next session - just depends whether I can hang in there long enough to pull off the upper crux!
