Rockfax Description
A superb sustained pitch, on which the gear is perfect, but hard work to place. A loose wall (old peg and good small wires) leads to the bulge that guards the crack, pull over this then press on rapidly up the soaring line. A couple of bridged rests are available for the long legged but the ability to press on will be found of more use. © Rockfax

Surprisingly difficult to stop and drop wires into the obvious cracks on the balancey middle section

This route is clean and doesn't rely on dodgy fixed gear. The peg at the initial overhang can be backed up with RPs.

Great route, systematically beaten into submission. Contains possibly the best nut placement I have ever used.
