For Whom the Swell Tolls** E6 6b

Rockfax Description
7b+, S2. Three cruxes with some steep stuff near the top for maximum pump. Swing right at sea level for 2m and ascend a hard scoop to the horizontal break. Continue up on good incuts then make extending moves leftwards to reach a giant undercut. Deep breath - go for it with full power direct to a mantelshelf exit, passing a big jug mid way. May have lost a crucial hold. © ROCKFAX

FA. Pete Oxley 23.5.98. Includes part of a short-lived but nice route called In Too Deep, E3 6a in its mid section. This line started at the break and moved right into Fathoms to finish - still worth seeking out. 23/May/1998

End of day retroflash. V tired & very surprised to hang on. Found an easier way to do the mantel. Great flash from Matt: cruised!

Slapped the top of the crag first go and took the plunge, sorted my life out second time around. A seriously good route. Hilarious watching Ross do a Moufassa style slow motion slide off the top out!

Amazing route. Nicely sustained. 3rd go, massively helped by Jacob's beta. Gutting comedy splashdown when my foot popped at the last second on the very the top mantel. Big air!
