Rockfax Description
15m. The long groove is a popular outing. Pass the big jammed block awkwardly then finish through the bowels of the cliff for the easiest exit. © Rockfax

Guidebook said high foot helped on the climb. Didn't realise it would have been nipple height! Flexibility helps.

Awesome! A heel hook on a VD! Didn't find that move too bad, but definitely think the route is generally harder than VD. Good gear, mind.

Greatly underestimated grade wise, should have a technical rating for the heel hook,there is a technique for doing it, however it seems to be a secret so wont spoil it

Has one tricky move - which takes 1/2 an hour to work out what to do. When you go for it it finally turns out to be ok :)
