[Roaches - Upper Tier., 2 kb]14m.

Rockfax Description
14m. The large roof under the right-hand side of the buttress is taxing. Climb leftwards across the overhang to the lip then trend back right and pull onto rock of a saner angle. Pre-placed wires to left and right protected the first ascent though it has been done without. © ROCKFAX

An amazing climb,with an amazing sequence and an amazingly serious outcome if it all goes Pete Tong. Solo seemed the more logically approach....

Too scared to try and flash, glad I didn't cos I fell off first go on top-rope! Death bouldering yay.

Wanted to flash it, but I'm not there yet. Hard starting moves into glory jugs. Awesome stuff.
