Rockfax Description
The best of the bunch. A really good pitch starting up the overhanging pocketed wall to the right of the cave. Dynamic moves utilising the various pockets lead to smearing and pulling on undercuts to overcome the bulge and reach the final pumpy corner above. © ROCKFAX


FA. Tom Walkington 1982. The first modern route at Scout Scar.

Dogged and sliced a finger up in the first 2 finger pocket. The rest of the route felt amazing! Maybe worth 3 stars. It felt hard but I loved it.
