Rockfax Description
The best route on this section of the cliff. The slick cracks and crozzly wall are used to gain the much easier left-to-right slanting ramp line. Follow the ramp to its end before finishing direct. © Rockfax

Thin low down, fun and well protected once the hanging cgroove is reached.

The lower wall feels stiff for 5a, they felt as hard as those on Brutus (E2)!
