[Jumping the gun, 3 kb]15m. The big diagonal flake is a delight in good conditions but unpleasantly slick if at all damp or greasy. Not one for an unsure second as the start is tough and protection on the blunt end not good. © ROCKFAX

Superb climb, again possibly soft in comparison to Blacknor Far south F6b but again perhaps just not my style vs my style. Steep-ish but with plenty of rests ! Really enjoyed this one. A clip stick may make the start a little more comfortable for the unsure.

I seconded it behind Phil, with only one rest on the rope. So I came back a bit later to try leading it. One rest only! A Charlie-shaped 6b! Fantastic line, wrestling with super-positive holds. I look forward to coming back with some more forearm power!
