Rockfax Description
Fine climbing which is both steep and pumpy - the E is for Effort on this one. Good gear but beware of rope drag. Climb diagonally right into Mars, above the fault-line. Move up then swing right under a roof, to the arete. Sprint up the leftward-slanting cracks, saving some 'umph' for the top face, staying right of a square-cut groove. © Rockfax

Took a long time, got very pumped, ran out of cams, got scared, pulled on gear, finished up the abb rope. Not the crowning moment i hoped it would be.

Awesome! Need more skill and fitness really, but i couldn't contain myself! Rested low on the face, due to skill failure, then took a fairly big lob from two feet below the top due to pump - 10 or so metres into space! Will get back on it soon. Fantastic climbing!!! Left a number 10 metolius nut on the face. Now bomber in situ gear. Blatantly only HVS with that ; )
