[Rik on acid drop! E4 5c! Hardest route of the day!, 2 kb]16m. Delicate dancing, then a butch and bold finale. Trend rightwards up the slab following an undercut flake. Pull over this then tackle the centre of the overhang. Poorly protected and reachy. © ROCKFAX

semi-sprinted to this with the sun rapidly dipping. we both got a lead just in time. Class route but the cool underlap/arch featurre thing didn't really climb as well or how i was expecting.
