Rockfax Description
The long groove above the right side of the pool 'rising from the lake', can be greasy after damp weather. The start is probably the crux though the layback moves on the upper section feel tough; beware the final blocky corner - it is getting shorter! © Rockfax

Blake thought it started at the higher ledge so we ended up soloing the crux. O.K, but not the finest climb on earth.

Was fairly grimy and damp the whole way. First move is quite tricky, then it's fairly easy grimy climbing - and then the last layback section was very hard, with okay gear. The move to enter the final layback was very committing too. Top of the grade IMO (at least when a bit dank it was).

scary run out on the top layback corner - didn't want to stop to place gear so just went for it. Really great climb - did anyone mention the ants?

The layback finish is rad. Commit and then keep going.

Been meaning to lead this one for years - wasn't disappointed. A good mix of climbing types, fairly steep finish and more gear than you could ask for.
