Rockfax Description
The left edge of the slab has a bold high step to reach a good break and gear. Pass the bulge by a long reach then finish direct, or stride out right - slightly easier. © Rockfax

Not for me. Felt awkward. Won't be leading it.

100 IAD No. 41 - wanted to bail but a jump off would've been horrible, committed and everything was fine.

Did this twice on a top rope without falling. Hard. Don't think I would fancy leading this.

Had some mats further down the hill but not sure they would have been any use anyway given the landing.

5c and pretty tricky if your short.

Two goes on top rope first, would have been a lot more wobbly without! placed the vital cam blind and pulled up to see it wasn't that great but went for it anyway. Excellent route but definitely hard for the grade. Not one to take a fall on!

Felt a bit E2 5cish, or maybe needed a proper warm up.
