Rockfax Description
12m. Well named! Reach the right-hand end of the flake in the roof and ape left along it until it is possible to grope round the lip with difficulty. Finish easily up the slab. A Direct Start with no change in grade but it misses out most of the simian antics. © Rockfax

Cleared the lip but couldnt find the higher holds, took 2 big falls onto the cams in the break. Felt tough for E2.

Hard, lichen on slab makes for interesting move once round the overhang. Bricked it, great route!

Pretty horrible style - tried to lead, hung lots, then set up top roped and dogged it some more! Top slab needs a good clean and seems tough for E2....

Lying horizontally along the crack under the roof with a knee lock is quite relaxing - suddenly finding yourself on the slab above in a westerly gale has the opposite effect. No gear from now on, just delicate, smeary climbing. 3*** as far as I am concerned.
