Rockfax Description
Rounded and bold. Start on the right and teeter leftwards up the slab until just right of the chimney. Pull through the overlap, rightwards (good runners at last) then back left, with difficulty and a poor pocket. Continue delicately up the slab to a large ledge and easy finish. A direct start is a bolder 5c. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Slab climbing above a good landing then a hideous graunch through the roof with good cams that are blindingly obvious even when you're walking from High Neb. Very escapable before the crux.

Bit gritty and not too clean. Too bold to lead

really nice route. Did the beginning direct. Couldn't see where you would put the gear in, but from a distance saw a guy trying it and he put it in the break on the single pocket headwall.
