Rockfax Description
14m. A superb outing up the sinuous crack, with quality finger jamming and gained from the large block in the corner. The crux occurs where the crack ends, transferring onto the final slab by a tricky mantelshelf. © Rockfax

Great route. Lower wall was still a little damp, but the crux was dry.

Hadn't quite realised how much of a mantel the top crux was! Good route.

Good finger locks good gear, found getting to rest position at 2 3rds height trickiest bit and almost fell off. Found top mantle ok on right, get right foot high and then you can swing your left foot over to the lower left top.

Unfortunately weighted gear after overstretching to gain the top hold.

Graeme Hammond 09/Apr/11 Lead O/S

Easier than it looks, beautiful finger locks and perfect runners. Quality route

Forgot my wires for very top move shit myself and fell off, put the wire in then it felt easy, top route!

So frustrating, clean to the top mantel move. Tried it, climbed down to rest. Tried again then had to rest on rope. Then immediately did it! ARGH! Fantastic route!

One rest - fluffed the move over the lip. Tough fingery moves all the way.
