[Fat Falling Pigs 6b, 2 kb]14m. A good line that is low in the grade and can be dusty. Weird tufa pipes and formations show the way to a fairly tiring finish. Use the lower-off to the right. © ROCKFAX

This climb is incredibly good as can only get cleaner/better with traffic. It is right at the grade and gives great flowing climbing from the start right through to the top.

the dustyness means you don't have to chalk up, which is nice. some good flowstone moves at the 3rd bolt. it's neighbour on the right looks lovely. can't wait to be healed and fit.
