Rockfax Description
The narrow slab gives delicate moves just below the ledge that cuts across the buttress. Finish via a thin crack. © Rockfax

admcne 05/Nov/17 Lead O/S

A pleasant climb, that definitely feels overlooked with it's 1 star rating. The finish through the overhang is awkward but adds to the climb overall.

Won't comment on the adjectival grade because I soloed it, but it is not 4c. Soft 4b?
