Rockfax Description
A great historic route that still regularly repels attempts. A desperate start (which has got harder over the years) using a poor pocket gains the groove and a knee-bar rest. Swing out right, then pull up and onto the technical slab to the lower-off. © Rockfax

Haha. Anoying first move! Had to fingertape my shoe on to make the heel tight enough to fit, which ment i was heel toe camming on finger tape not rubber. Very slippy heel!
