Rockfax Description
10m. Excellent. Climb the centre of the buttress passing through the conspicuous shallow notch (the bull's horns) to below the capping roof. Finish left or right over this. © Rockfax

Very polished so there are some tough moves on the slab. Also difficult to protect. After the bull horns are the holds are slopers, high friction but slopers. Then the final pull through the overlap is steep and on slopers. Total sandbag. I had a mini epic and had to sidestep to edge of slab to relieve pump before continuing. Good but hard for the grade. Logged as a dog due to the sidestep but no falls or rests on the rope.

Found it very bold and polished, didn't have the beans to just go for it! Probably could have pulled it off if I did!

Was testing 4 years ago, went without fuss this time. Good crimpy holds when you find them.

Good climb. Short on gear and bold through the horns. Quite polished lower down. High in the grade imo.

Nice Climbing untill 1/2 way, that it becomes very friable and "dirty". Went off route to the left. One to return to, to conquor.

Enjoyed it - a couple of foot holds which look positive but are actually polished like glass.

Found a couple of interesting moves, bit polished, and took a direct exit (no harder than the rest of the route)

An extremely enjoyable climb. Quite easy upto half height, then becomes a little more difficult. No real problems though.
