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

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.

Second attempt, rested twice, got all the moves fine. Next time fresh it'll go, provided I remember the sequence!
