Rockfax Description
14m. Climb the groove to the ledge then pull over the left-hand side of the big roof on thankfully substantial holds (VDiff!) and finish up the juggy wall. © Rockfax

Fun route! First part easy, second part interesting. I agree that it's the most gymnastic move I've encountered on a VDiff, but all the holds are great!

Easy start then the second part was tricky for a VD deployed a 'Heel Hook' to get up.

A great wee climb with positive holds on the top section giving confidence to tackle the steep step up from the break.
