Rockfax Description
Popular, polished and excellent. Climb up to the dong at 4m, hump up this then follow easier-angled rock. The lower-off is most-easily reached by looping left and leaning back right. © Rockfax

Struggled to get much further than the dong, super fun route to dangle off for a while though - makes a fun swing when you fall off!

sustained; 2 definite cruxes; great line; polished start but improves after; look for small pinch at second crux

Fluffed the onsight here as well. Got to the top of the tufa and couldn't do the next move. After a rest and a faff made it through to the next bolt where I repeated the process. After a rest belaying graham I was surprised to get it clean.

Great route. A bit harder & steeper than what I usually climb. I wouldn't recommend this in 34 degree heat with no wind!
