[...and thus able to relax now that's over with., 2 kb]16m. Quality face climbing with a bold central section. Climb the right arete of Rubberneck (a highish runner is permissible) then trend right by high-stepping/rockovers and tricky mantelshelves before following holds straight up the wall, which eases gradually with height.

Just enough holds on the face; not as tough as it looks from ground, fantastic route on great rock

Awesome route!! Managed to get my heel on wrong for the second rock over. One of the best routes I've done to date
Andrew Abraham - Lead RP - 17/Dec/13 with Ky

had my eye on this for ages, great to get it done, and a great climb. the rockovers not the hardest part for me, it was leaving Rubberneck and getting to the first rockover, very thin.
