Rockfax Description
A class act with a big feel. The fine steep crack in the centre of the wall leads through a series of bulges to a ledge out on the right. Balance back left above the roof and sprint for the top. © Rockfax

Fab climb! Lovely traverse left at top that was fine once sequence worked out. Would have had to be brave and commit on lead as slightly above gear. Really great.

What a superb climb! The beginning is enjoyable and the crux brilliant. After protecting the crack from below an exciting, airy left traverse gains the crack to move up and finish. It has a sense of exposure but it is within the grade so no surprises.

Excellent route. Had to downclimb from the start of the traverse to put gear in the bottom of the left hand crack otherwise a fall would have resulted in a big swing - not what I need with a holey ankle bone.

Fantastic climb. Nervy traverse on to the final crack, but once you (eventually) commit not too bad.

First proper HVS, was an awesome climb to finish of a year of climbing, mass exposure on last step out move, so close to taking a fall.
