Rockfax Description
12m. The central rift of the buttress gives a fine outing, steep and quite awkward, as far as the capping roof. A stomach-traverse used to be the way to go, though nowadays there are less extreme ways of getting left to the final short crack. © Rockfax

Picked this for a battle and got one! Don't think I've every been so out of puff on a climb before. 30 deg with overhanging/jamming/thrutching...none of which are my strong points! Great route.

I thought it was HS! Not surprised it is now graded VS! Tricky middle section, ended up spending too much time trying to place gear I couldn't place, getting pumped and almost thinking of dogging it out. But pulled myself together and wedged myself in the above crack and up to the finish. Brilliant route!
