14m. A tough proposition at the grade taking in some brilliant moves on perfect rock. There is a lower-off at the 6th bolt but it is possible to continue up the wall, and small corner above, for which a rack will be needed. Alternatively (better) link up with the upper section of Cement Head (fully bolted). © ROCKFAX

AMAZING ROUTE. So pleased to have finally ticked it! Super powerful, sustained and fingery. Psyched. Couldn't comment on the grade as it's my first at 7b+.

Worth 7c to the top of the crag. Now bolted all the way. A fantastic outing, one of the best at the grade I've ever done.
