Rockfax Description
Popular. There is a tough section over the bulge and the finish is easy to get wrong. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The lower-off has been placed about a metre higher meaning that now everyone (not just shorties)has to do the finishing moves before being able to clip the lower-off. July 2010.
