Rockfax Description
The large, overhanging corner is one of Bosigran's most coveted Extreme testpieces. It stays damp a lot longer than most of the other routes. Start 5m right of the large spike at a corner.
Climb the corner to an overhang and pass it on the left. Move up to the main corner and make technical moves up it to an overhang. Steep climbing past the overhang is rewarded by better holds on the right wall that enable a swing right out onto the arete and a rest. Move back into the corner and follow it to its end and the top just above. © Rockfax

Very pleasant. Not sure the benefit of climbing up on the sketchy hollow arÍte as there's another rest just one move on.

Felt as hard as Kafoozalem. Couldn't rest at the top of the groove, committed to a desperate back and foot sequence up the "chimney" on the overhanging wall. Not sure that was the best way but it worked, just! Top crack is also nails. Awesome

Set out to do Deja Vu but there was a seagull with a chick on the belay ledge so did Variety Show and then this as the consolation prize. Great route! Starts off easily enough (the giant flake is a lot easier than it looks!) but soon picks up the tempo. Not sure how something that looks like a patch manages to be quite as hard! To be fair, the crux is pretty steep but the rest of it isn't and yet it's still hard! A few tricky moves lead to the niche below the crux, which is a good rest but pumpy on the calves. The crux featured an awkward and slightly insecure hand jam and desperate bridging before the relief of getting a jug, followed by a perfect resting ledge. Then came the sting in the tale! Another tough 5c sequence, this time above gear. Solid at the grade, in fact found it harder than Kafoozalem the day before!
