Rockfax Description
A brilliant, testing line that features some hard moves low down. Start just to the left of a corner in the low overhang. Execute a technical, but short-lived sequence to better holds on the wall above, then follow this to the mid-height break. The clean-cut corner and headwall above are the icing on the cake. © Rockfax

Slipped off the opening move so loosing the OS!!!! Very annoying. Very muddy a mid-height, but still a great route.

I think I may have wandered onto the 6b+ next door, as I finished off on a lower off to the right. Unless a new route has been put up between them... weird
