Rockfax Description
A fine climb up the clean face and left-trending finger-flake. Climb the lower wall on superb rock to an overlap. Reach left to a thin flake-crack which leads strenuously to the top and a good finishing hold. © Rockfax

Had to rest by the last bolt to figure out the last few moves. Great, but tiring climb, even on top-rope.

Relatively easy sequence of moves, you've just got to fight the pump. Lovely moves on good and positive, but spaced holds (bearing in mind I'm only 5'8"), although the key to the route is footwork. Came off the polished sloping top hold below the chain - should have gone for the better higher block. One to go clean next time!!
