Rockfax Description
A classic of the Orme which has a bit of everything, alternating between steep pulls and technical sequences with good rests in between. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Make elegant moves over the first bulge to reach a resting place below an overlap. Pull over and follow a line of jugs rightwards across the bulge to reach a handrail. Get stood up and step back left, then climb straight up to jugs. Finish with a sequence of superb rock-overs.

1st RP. Really chuffed with this, felt totally desperate putting the clips in but really easy on the lead. Really varied climbing.

Thought it was nails when working the moves but got it first redpoint and didn't find it too bad then! Found the steep juggy moves above the third bolt hard as the feet are poor but worked out an ok sequence for the redpoint (LH into first jug, RH, LH, LH, RH to good jug above next bolt. Technical crux is getting the mega jug on the headwall. Also felt desperate and had to try it many times on the first go but straightforward on the redpoint. Pleased!
