Rockfax Description
The right-hand side of the corner is not as dirty as Gandhi. It sees few ascents but is a useful grade for this crag. The pull around the bulge near the top needs determination. © Rockfax

probably shouldn't have done this in boots, the crux move is tech graded for a reason.

Absolutely choss. Hardly sees any traffic? It's pretty polished for lack of use. Stacked Against around to the left is easier and nicer.
