Rockfax Description
A fine line that has some excellent sustained climbing. Start up Central Gully before moving out onto the right-trending line of thin flakes. Finish up the technical corner. Avoiding the final corner on the right drops the overall grade to 6b+ but not the number of stars. © Rockfax

Excellent wall and corner, went smoothly. Corner is balancey, but all the time in the world to work it out. Great route.

Relatively comfortable 6C. I tried to avoid the corner at the top and stay up the face to the left, but found it really hard moving off those slopers, so just went up the corner. Does that make it a 6b+? Another climber told me it was 6b+ only if you go around to the right and finish up the 6b, but the route description doesn't really make it clear.

Brilliant climbing up the flakes on the wall. Just one hard move on slopers in the top corner with a bolt above you.

Technical but not strenuous. Really good climbing past the second and third bolt, and pretty easy up the final groove (if you're patient!!!). Felt soft for the grade.

Testing technical moves lower down which felt great, nicely committing. The top groove felt desperate direct and involved me strenuously undercutting a loose but wedged in broken lump.

The rests were more due to nerves than the difficulty of the climbing.

I knew the top section from toproping Forever Young - however I don't think it impacts the style, as the top is much easier than start.
