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.

No falls, but could not get to the high foothold on the nose. Eventually did it by energetic thrutch up chimney. Mark found an extra foothold after several tries.

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 :)
