Rockfax Description
To the right of the open corner is a blunt arete which is undercut on its right-hand side. This route follows the crack to the left of the arete. Not very well named, thankfully. © Rockfax

Committing first few moves. To stop and place gear or keep going until you can rest...

Failed miserably on the start. Found it pretty greasy on this day. Managed it on the second after Nick took over the lead.

Ian tried to lead but had to back off. He'd placed 2 bits gear. I then led through.

Probably the pumpyist route I have ever done at the grade. Totally boxed out of my head topping out, simple moves on jugs, just steep.

Lower section got a bit pumpy. Might have just been a bit of early morning greasiness though. Good route anyway - steep start, juggy and well protected.
