Drowning Man* 6b
[A Drowning Man, 2 kb]22m.

Rockfax Description
A nice route up the groove on the right of the wall. Make some steep moves to gain the first bolt and groove. Wrestle up the groove, which is harder than it looks and can seep after rain. At the top of the groove, gain the ramp-line that leads up and right to the final corner. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Start 6m right of 'Sensible Shoes', climb past 2 bolts to a ramp - follow this to the corner - head straight up this. Rebolted and given a grade of F6b (10/06)
