Rockfax Description
A steep and powerful classic. Climb the fingery lower wall then break left on jugs to power upwards and attack the sloping rail. A difficult rockover/mantel onto the upper slab spits most contestants off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start in the centre of the wall. Move up to the break and from there swing left till a move up can be made to gain the slanting crack in the top overhang. Follow this slightly rightwards to finish with a tricky mantel. Probably worth 6a for the lower moves.
