Punks in Power** E5 6b

Rockfax Description
A hard pitch with good but spaced protection. A real arm destroyer. Start as for The Lean Machine. Follow The Lean Machine to a good hold 2m above the low fault-line. Move left on big handholds to a crack and take this to a move up left to a flake. Continue to below a blank calcite sheet near the top. This provides a testing climax. Exit right through the upper overhang and climb a thin slab rightwards to a ledge. Finish by pulling up on the abseil rope. © ROCKFAX

Brilliant route, really steep and sustained with generally good gear. The flake is a bit spooky. Fell off the calcite sheet. Felt like top end e5, but good gear where you need it

Came to a halt at the crux on the calcite sheet, finished up Sirus. Quite a bit harder then LM and SC.

Fierce crux involving a long reach and high feet. Might be back for this!
