[The tricky bit!, 2 kb]10m. Artificial but with some good moves and decent protection and quite popular for an eliminate. Climb through a scoop and up the indefinite flaky crack directly above. © ROCKFAX

Tried it three times first and each time failed at start and middle section. tried it later on and managed start first time then fell on move at the middle.

matt8hew88 - TR β - 17/May/14

Did first few moves getting established on first brake, then no more gear and very tenuous moves up slab await with definitive ground fall potential, so bottled into crack to the right and rejoined route after slab section

Found the start very tricky. Did one down climb after lots of dithering. Another tricky section higher up with twin seams.
