Rockfax Description
14m. Climb a series of steep grooves up the right-hand side of the steepest part of the face. Perhaps it should have been called Tarry Not because of the not inconsiderable angle of the rock. © Rockfax

Quite a toughie for the grade, a few moves interest on the upper section as well

Tala M 10/Jul/14 2nd

Had to rest on the rope to get a cam out otherwise I reckon it would have been a clean ascent. Very balancy move near the top!

Fell from crux, gear ripped, hit deck. Stood at bottom could see exactly what I should have done.
