Rockfax Description
The classic of the crag featuring some superb steep blob climbing. A hands-off rest is possible in one of the holes but the effort of getting your leg in probably makes it more trouble than it's worth. © Rockfax

First 7a onsight - little reachy, nice fun. Put the knee bar in. Took a bit of folding in but worth it I reckon!

1st RP after messing up the hand sequence and losing balance on the footwork on the onsight. Could have flashed, but great fun climbing anyway on big holds with a couple of long moves to keep it interesting.
