Classic! Had one session on it the past two summers, felt much better this time. Didn't stop me from falling off the last move first go!

Spent time on this in the mid 90's. Tried it once last year and again on 27th. Helps to extend the bolt below the roof. Fantastic feature and perfect rock. Shamefully omitted from the Northern Rockfax guide.
