Rockfax Description
12m. The central groove is problematical until the first decent finger-jam is reached (a V2 problem). Teeter up the scoop above (no gear after the start) to an easier finish. © Rockfax

Mint route, felt great on lead. Had worked the start on a previous trip.

Did this on a top rope. Took me ages to sort out the first few moves. The scoop above is excellent.
