Rockfax Description
Climb up the awkward bottom wall to the break, then pull over a bulge and continue up a large chalked-up flake. (Stick clip the second staple for the 7b+ tick if the bottom is wet). Move up to undercuts and rightwards to climb a short fingery section. Then head back left and up to the break. Continue up the pumpy groove above to a high lower-off (28m). When very dry you can do the start to Barely Decent and move right at 7b+ for the full route from the ground. © Rockfax

First redpoint. Good route, top a bit dirty as only just dried out I think.

One dogging go with the clip stick, another bolt to bolt but with a link from break to top, then one attempt where I got through the crux then fell leaving it. Should go next visit.
