Survival of the Fastest*** E5 6a
[Throwing shapes on SOTF, 3 kb]40m.

Rockfax Description
40m. An awesome pitch tackling the thin crack and flake line bounding the left side of the Nemesis Wall. Extremely sustained and varied climbing throughout. One of the origonal protection peg is no longer insitu and the pitch is now more strenuous due to the difficulty of arranging alternative nut protection. Pull steeply into the base of the line and follow the crack strenuosly to where it curves and fades and a thin left traverse past a bolt eventaully gains easier ground. The right slanting crack above is still tricky, and the final moves need care as the rock is poor. © ROCKFAX
