Rockfax Description
Another great route. Start 3m up the broken corner. Use ledges to reach a left-slanting crack. Climb this to an easing. Finish directly up the steep headwall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The end of the slanting crack leads to the rest point on Barney Rubble. From this rest head up leftwards into the flowstone. Then up and over onto the ledges.

Nice route, and would make a good warm up. Most of the holds are pretty big. Felt easier than Bedrock, soft 6c or maybe even hard 6b+?

soft for 6c+, not sure we got the line spot on, the rockfax has a pic showing a horizontal crack that I think I was above, missed a bolt which made things a bit spicier, upper headwall section is good
