Hard for grade, hard to work out where to go and a large run out between bolts. Personally, I did not enjoy it.

Run out, and a bit tricky. Harder than Sergio Y Antonio, which is supposedly a grade harder. Oh Rockfax, you are so fickle.

So tilted. Did not like. After pretty much every bolt I was unsure whether to go left or right...

Crazy run out (almost constantly scary), super sustained... deserves its 3*

dwerinjohnson 15/Dec/16 Lead dnf

This for me was quite a scary, pumpy route which was a little reachy at times, not all that solid feet in parts too. I did not complete as I took a nasty fall at the crux my sweatshirt getting caught on the snap gate on the quick draw of my previous clip as I fell past it, piercing my jumper and flipping me face first into the rock upside down. My helmet saved my skull, thankfully, though my jumper is worse for wears. An ideal climb for those who are all about the strong arms and smearing.

Failed again after completing the first 5 clips, I managed to scare myself after looking at a clip that was miles away and needing to do a tricky move to get to it.
