Rockfax Description
Intricate and fingery followed by a powerful crux. Start on the right-hand side of the raised ledge.
Pull up to a blob and crimp up left to better holds. Step left to a finger-crack and make very powerful moves through the narrow overlap above to a good ledge. Finish up the easier wall above. A variation start climbs directly to the finger-crack. © Rockfax

In terms of movement, I enjoyed this more than Thread Flintstone.

First RP attempt after putting clips in. Wasn't sure I had a plan for the first bit really but got through quite tidily and managed to hold the 3 big moves (for me) together afterwards

Harder than the route to the left although most of the holds on the harder section were soaking and unusable. Good fun.

im not sure i climbed the correct line, for me getting to the second bolt was very hard and took me a few goes, after the 3rd bolt i moved right instead of left, this was very easy but i think perhaps of route?

1st redpoint.good technical moves but pleasently simple to read.satisfying reach for the ledge- evidence of people headin right then coming back in- direct is better.second clip tricky, clipped it at belly button height.
