Rockfax Description
Another Portland classic, with continuously interesting and varied moves on superb rock. Start at a vertical wall directly below a clean-cut corner in the upper wall. A hard move to a good hold gains easier ground that leads to the midway horizontal break. Pull up leftwards into the base of the square-cut corner. Climb the corner steeply to a difficult exit out right and up to gain the finishing headwall. © Rockfax

Powerful start on tiny holds, halfway ledge rest and then sequency upper section. Sustained and varied with good rests available. Sent 5th go...

Matti Puckridge 14/May Lead RP

Hard start and hard finish with great sustained climbing the whole way. Find the rests.

One of my very best climbing experiences :) On arrival, conditions were greasy from top to bottom but improved with a brush and even more so when the sun arrived. Don't be put off by the soapy starting holds!

After a few false starts on the soapy crimps, lead to the final break before pumping out. Really need to save something for the final stretch! Great line.

Almost 2nd go but my hand slipped off the slopy soapy holds after the crux. Will need to come back for this. Cool route
