Central Route* VS 4c

Rockfax Description
The wide, central depression in the next bay is a good but serious line on very good rock, although large amounts of moss can build up on the upper ledges. Start below the central depression.
Move easily left to below a thin finger-crack and climb this with difficulty to a ledge below the upper right-trending line of ledges. Follow these carefully to the top, this section is unprotected. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
A few easy moves up usually damp cracks lead to a commiting mantel onto the first ledge (crux) the gear is good, but it does feel bold. After this the route follows the easy ramp corner to the top (no gear for this though).

Really tough for the grade. Have lead a good amount at this grade but wouldn't want to have lead this one. Tough with tricky/runout gear. Has potential to be ok but too vegetated and wet to be worth a star in my opinion.
