Rockfax Description
A strong line that provides a fine challenge. Start at a short clean-cut corner left of the main leaning-corner. Move up the corner to the base of the main corner, then follow this to just below the large overhang. Swing right on a thin horizontal crack, around the arete, to a corner. Follow the corner and cracks to a steep finish. © Rockfax

Got to the low crux, got pumped getting three (!) bits of gear in and fell unexpectedly on the crux, tommy was on it as usual and I fell with no injuries considering I hit the a avoidable ledge underneath. He then led it in one the bastard! Good one tommy. Thanks for saving my arse again

Tried leading, but went the wrong way so tried to go around the overhang right too early. Got super tired and pumped, got myself onto the overhang and just couldn't hold on. Dammit!!

My first VS lead. Love this route, it's great fun and I flowed right up it except for the top out - I was fighting the rope for the last move because at some point near the end, the lower rope had dropped into a crack on the side of the ledge that makes the crux. Watch out for that!

First lead of the day. Awesome climbing, bit damp at the very bottom, but the rest was very dry for 10am. Stepping out was exposed and strenuous, but fun all the same- placing a hex half way across making it all the more tricky.
