Rockfax Description
Another popular route with the grade causing some debate, some think easier than Sardine, others harder. Follow Sardine to the traverse back right, then climb the depression above on small holds to a rest. Step left and make some quick pulls up the slab to reach the upper break. © Rockfax

FA. Steve Lewis 1988. This route straightened out several hybrids including a Fawcett variation on Sardine, and Bullit the Blue Sky.

1 go to put rope in and one tr with number of rests in full sun. Didn't find the half way crux a problem but the top section will definitely need refining, so many holds to find the right ones

Had tried once before in the rain. First go up it was grim again. Had another couple of tries but find the end of the traverse nails which then screws me for for the rest. Also find the top really sequency and reachy (hard).

PROJECT...can do all the moves, just need to train, train, train. crux sequence: pocket with right, high gaston/undercut with left, crimp by clip with right, furthest left crimp with left, flat triangle hold and then up again to sidepull with right.
