Rockfax Description
An absolute mega classic! Start from The Block and reverse The Might of the Stalactite until you begin to naturally elevate towards a small cave in the wall. Rest here before tackling the finale, which involves a pull over the roof to a good pocket, followed by a rising traverse to join Roter Baron at a large bucket hold. © Rockfax

Hurrah for cave! Great rest spot before long move (I had to dyno), only made it because of all the awesome encouragement, in multiple languages, from others at the crag!
