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

The e8 way.

With the cams on the left, no peg. E8 seems spot on. Wanted to do this route for years!

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.

Early repeat (3rd ascent?) Climbed the original way from right with peg and felt about E7 6c.
