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

Really pleased to get this on my first go of the evening, without the draws in. This time finished the route properly by going out left. Really loved putting in all the effort and time. Progress is sweet! Summer solstice psych!

Nice technical route. Although it's tricky to say where to go after the last jug. I will have to come back and give it a go out left below ledge. Got it on my first redpoint. 6/6/15 the route goes out left after 2nd jug, such a better and rewarding finish. Epic line just ran out of time to redpoint, next session.

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.

guy xavier percival - Lead RP - 29/Nov/12 with paul

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?

Garrouli - Lead RP - 2010 with Mark, Pete

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.
