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

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.

Brill ; don't think I'd lead it at the mo

Cragrat Rich 03/Jun/11 Lead O/S

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.

Please with this one - nice technical moves!

Had done this with a couple of rests earlier in the year so was keen to get it redpointed. It was a cold day and a struggle to keep warm.

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.
