Rockfax Description
14m. A good route with hard but safe (if you don't mind a bit of flight time) climbing. Reverse the last section of Duke of York then use the flake to make tough moves to reach better holds. Finish up the flake and flutings above. Photo on page 327. © Rockfax

Second go, ground up. Repeated it twice more with no issues. Definitely going to come back for the lead tick when I can find the plums cause the route is every bit as good as it looks from the ground!

Really fun. Hard and safe. I was so cold I bulldosed my way through static.
