The groove system through the roofs at the LH end of the crag. Pull over the top roof rightwards to jugs which lead up left to the lower-off. Excellent climbing.

An amusing combination of being physically easy but blind and very committing. Also the most sonorous rock i've come accross at the base of the climb :P

Dax - Lead rpt - 02/Aug/11 with Nick Harms

Nice lead .. reckon we have this off pat now .. actually not that difficult .. although you still wouldn't want to fall off the balancy move just before the lower off :-)

First clean 6B, flash after watching Dax and Nick climb it. Chuffed, also first climb in this roof style, tough.

Damn should have got this one ..wasn't able to figure out the move from the break quick enough. Watched Nick do it a different way .. will have to decide which way to do it next time and go for the clean lead.

Have tried this route a couple of years ago with Bide, crux seemed desperate. Turns out you can tackle the second overhang using good holds on the right, made it considerably more doable.
