Rockfax Description
Exiting the thin crack is harder than it looks, the wires are tricky to place and the finish is pretty pumpy. It's good though! © Rockfax

climberchristy 18 Apr, 2015 Lead G/U This is really tricky for the grade. Awkward. Never really lets you rest. Footholds very lichenous and dirty. Sat on to gear today trying to work out the top moves which are hard to read. Too hot and tired at end of day. However, pulled ropes and led clean ground up after a rest. Foot slipped on lichen grabbing for the top but managed to hold on and scramble over!

Misha 10 Oct, 2010 Lead dog A boiling day on the Costa del Curbar, not really ideal for grit climbing. The crack was fairly steady until the top few moves. Moved up to the undercut, didn't like it and tried to reverse down to the rest, which was a mistake as it was quite hard to reverse and I peeled off. Went for it the second time round and it wasn't that hard to move past the undercut. The finishing moves on the other hand proved to be quite testing - unhelpful slopers leading to some heather. Eventually managed to find some slightly juggier slopers on which it was possible to pull out. Really annoying as I hadn't failed to do an E2 clean for a long time. Unfortunately Su couldn't figure out the start and gave up, so ended up abbing it.
