Agra*** HVS 5b
[Climbers on Agra, Slipstones. 2009., 3 kb]7m.

Rockfax Description
8m. Pull past the overlap then traverse out left to a good ledge. The centre of the roof requires a bit of a tussle. The Wimp's Finish heads all the way to Ulfer's Crack to avoid the roof, VS 4b. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Traverse that slab leftwards to a ledge beneath the roof. Climb the roof via the obvious weakness.

Bailed right when stumped by the roof. Lower slab feels harder and scarier than ever

Finished the route on Robin's gear. Really good moves through the roof, certainly makes you think twice. Not easy on the slab either.
Alex the Alex - Lead - 20/Jul/14 with Robin

Ended up backing off top out due to lack of psyche in the heat. After Alex finished the lead I found the pocket I'd missed on lead and finally managed to reach the top out.

Always wanted to Solo, but to be honest i was glad to be there with someone wanting to lead it too, It's high and could be read wrong. Great roof, quality.
