Rockfax Description
An intense exercise up the blank-looking wall. Move up and traverse left to a jug before making a difficult move up to the overlap. Go left again to arrive at the easier upper wall. A variation goes up right of the bolt before the traverse 6c. © Rockfax

Hard crux to contemplate but turning out not all that bad. Required the right strategy, which for me involved getting the crux clipped up and a retreat, before committing to the sequence. Top quality climbing all round!

Led the route but used a clipstick to get the third bolt for the crux. Climbed the route again on toprope but dragged a lead rope and placed all the quickdraws and made all the clips this time. Will return for a redpoint attempt. Fantastic route!
