Rockfax Description
Quality climbing with a sting in the tail. Start 6m right of the large block.
Leave the ground with some difficulty and continue past the break and up the small steep corner to the crux rock-over that provides access to the final short slab. © Rockfax

The best I could manage on a day of incredible fatigue. Probably not 7c on a cold day.

Not too bad up to the roof, but could't get my expansive arse over the mantle. Will try left foot first next time.

Feels very close now, solid on the crimps, just made a mistake with foot placement at the crux

Hard roll- over mantle... Couldn't get it... Enjoyed up to there, probably 7a, 6c+ too the crux.

New beta for the top out rocking over on the left foot rather than right, worked well.

The letterbox pocket was sopping and I just couldn't make it work for me :( feel like I've got the beta worked out though, hope to one day try it when it's not seeping!

Definitely soft, the only hard move really is the rock over/mantel, and even that is just as matter of commitment.

Mike Goldthorp 09/Jan/13 Lead RP

Awesome climax! (thats what she said) Fell off the flash on the rockover, blind moves to the lip and tricky to get your feet up, really hard to read. 1st redpoint felt steady.

with Giles, Hannah B, Cailean Harker

2nd redpoint today, first bit seems a bit pointless as there is such a good rest but nice moves over the top, clipping may be the hardest move! soft
