Rockfax Description
14m. The centre of the wall is tricky (V2) to start and bold to finish. From the ledges, finish up Josephine Direct. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The boulder problem wall and much bolder rib above. The lower crux is fine climbing and although there is a decent offset nut it won't help much on the mantle to gain Josephine Direct.

Finally did the boulder problem after nearly 10 years of on and off trying. Then finished it off the whole route. Lovely.

Took me several attempts to get the boulder problem at the start. Rested for a bit then got a clean run. Brilliant route.

Upper moves are no harder than the start but I don't like the idea of trusting the single small wire.

Hard f*cking work trying to make the first moves. Took a dozen or so attempts. Very impressed with Matteusz for leading it. Bold as hell.

Quite fancied leading this but didn't fancy my chances wearing six layers so TRed it to keep warm. Also did the 6b to the right cant remember the name.
