Rockfax Description
16m. Utterly desperate! Allow a slack rope when passing the third bolt since a tight rope reduces the grade dramatically. © ROCKFAX

Brilliant route! Steady climbing into a V9/10 boulder and then some more powerful moves on top of that. I tried this for a couple of sessions over a year ago but soon realised that it was too hard for me. After doing most of the other routes on Ferocity over the past two weeks I thought it was probably time to get back on it. I managed to get it done over two sessions within the past year and in 4 redpoints. I found this much harder than Ha'penny although I do that in 40 moves and this in 17, so very different styles. Very happy to get this one ticked... only one route left on the wall!
