[Ivy League, f7a+, Scout Scar, 4 kb]14m. 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 leave you smearing and pulling on undercuts to overcome the bulge and reach the final pumpy section above. Lower off. © ROCKFAX
