Rockfax Description
A worthwhile direct line. From under the left end of the overlap, pull right on pockets and climb boldly to the break. Head straight up the wall into the base of the scoop at the point where Millsom's Minion comes in from the right. Finish easily. © Rockfax

Started up Millsom's but went left to the crux. Bad route reading.

Felt a bit squeezed near the top, but good route

Pretty scary move to the break. No pads, bit rainy, horrifying and fun.

2 falls low down trying to pull on wet pockets jangled my nerves a little too much to continue.

Fell from 12ft trying to reverse tricky pockets hit ground on the stretch. Save for the shunt!

onsight, although I've done every other route on the buttress. Softer than Comet. Tough start.

lower part not very enjoyable - too warm in those pockets. Top was fun though.
