Rockfax Description
A very good pitch from start to finish. The technical wall and pleasant groove culminate in a final pull onto the headwall using a vertical runnel. © Rockfax

The Ivanator 18/Nov/12 Lead O/S

Nice route, technical start, fingery moves to the ledge then thuggy steep finish, great variety. Gets 6a+ in the 2012 Rockfax, but 6a is probably fair.

Got pumped about half way and had a rest. Wish I'd just cracked on as a decent rest was only a few moves away. Nice route though.
