Rockfax Description
The easiest hard route here pre-dates the others by a decade - it will still leave you breathless! Climb the left side of the face aiming for the right edge of the capping roof, to finish as for Apparent North. Significantly easier in cool conditions. f7A+ above a (big!) pile of mats, and/or a snow drift. © Rockfax

Nice to do it again. Consolation after failing on Black Car Burning.

Tricky bugger! Bit warm (!) on the slopers and as I'm a tiddler I struggled to reach from the crack to the good bit of the sloper. Would Defo head back with cloudy cool conditions. Be great to climb this thing! Great movement.

Snowballed. Still hard!

Snowball attempt. I'll blame the tape on three fingertips of the right hand. That platform needs to be wider!

Took about five tries, but didn't use the sloper.

Finally worked it out after a few previous visits. Ground-up solo but with many jump-offs in total. Fantastic crux move - subtle and committing.
