Rockfax Description
A splendid pitch that features a forceful finger-crack. Start in an overhung sentry-box. Move up and right to clear the overhang and gain the wall above. Climb the wall rightwards on good finger-holds to the base of a thin crack in the upper wall. The fine, thin crack is climbed with difficulty to a short headwall. © Rockfax

Exciting thin crack with small feet at the top makes up for a average first half. Well worth doing for the upper section.

Awesome route, felt a bit run out and tenuous in the finger groove - great locks but hard to trust when hot and sweaty!
