Rockfax Description
16m. The right-hand blackened flake leads to the break, the short wall above gives some precarious moves. Continue steeply just left of the upper arete. © Rockfax

Pumped off placing cams after the crux. Quite intimidating for HVS! Eliminate line seems much more direct and much nicer!

Hung around at the first break for too long, and couldn't pull any more. Took a few pathetic upside-down falls before giving up.
