Rockfax Description
Well-named. Climb the steep wall initially up a shallow groove, then centrally with increasing apprehension to a final desperate sequence on ancient bullet marks. Originally done with a (hand) pre-placed peg runner by starting on the right. The direct start was added before it was finally soloed - high in the grade! © Rockfax

βeta: For a solo ascent, E10 would be nearer the mark. Far more serious than Equilibriam

Gazleah ?Jun, 2011 TR RP Put the route together all but one move. Will be back to finish ASAP. Couldn't find any peg at the top and will try it the born slippy way next time.
