Rockfax Description
32m. An excellent pitch. Start up the left-leaning ramp. Direct up the upper section is harder than the left-hand option. © Rockfax

Tough. Only managed to onsight this by the skin of my teeth. Skipping the final bolt is a good idea - it's only 1 metre to the chains.

Didn't find this too bad as I'd been told it was crimpy at the top and so kept expecting the holds to get small, but try don't, they're Spanish crimps, eg. Huge. Also its pretty obvious so just go for it! And if you're on a shit hold the next one is probably big so just keep going!

2nd go. Worked the moves with Zen a month or so ago, went first go putting the clips in this time. So nearly dropped off the crux, then I got pumped out my fucking bracket on the top crimping section

Fluffed the hard bit near the top on the flash try and then absolutely gutting to make basically exactly the same mistake on rp1. Such a good route.

Bit of a rubbish Effort, went west below the crux and couldn't recover any composure. Definately come back for the RP as the line is boss

First outdoor 7a+ onsight (but I'm now told by locals that the direct line I took is actually 7b). Very good climb once you get into the meat of it. Stay on the direct line of tufas and you'll be rewarded with an excellent and pumpy climb.

Fell just below chain on 1st attempt. Sent on 2nd go and enjoyed it even more.

Cool route with a choice of lines. The leftward line is more flowy and requires less pinch power

Took a very direct line so felt pretty hard. easier if you snake around more in the mid section!
