Rockfax Description
Climb the thin crack in a shallow corner (fiddly small wires) then layback up the easier continuation corner. The route stays a bit greasy long after rain. © Rockfax

βeta: The higher part of the 1st crack was the only place I could get a nut in more than halfway, and that was a 1. Nice climb with some useful hidden holds.

βeta: Not that good wires. The grit is so soft there and seems quite eroded. I wouldn't really trust the placements higher in the initial corner crack.
