Classic headgames up the shallow groove, with a 4m fall potential before even starting. Luckily the holds all appear as you need them.

Lot's of holds to chose from surprisingly, though the top holds were sopping wet, so had to top out left which turned out to be 'exciting'. Will come back and repeat when it's dry.

Boy - May/09 with Nige Kershaw

kingholmesy - Solo O/S - 2008

A steep constricting groove. The holds are small incuts that are hard to see. No protection, so the ascent is always in doubt.
