Rockfax Description
A direct on Sepulchrave with only a short independent section but with some memorable moves! Climb Sepulchrave's crack then continue directly to enter the large porthole by awkward undercutting and a precarious high step. Finish up Sepulchrave. © Rockfax

Made easier with some of Matt's gear in, but not much. Good move, which took a bit of time for me to figure out

Tried this before and came off at porthole. Finished it off today clean, but plenty of udging at the top.

Pulled on a cam on the HVS bit near the start and required frequent rests on the HVS wide crack at the top. The 5c was not so bad if you could reach.

Fell off crux, comedy upside-down fall into the tree branches. Did the crux easily second go but the cleft at the top proved a complete mare, had to leave the helmet in the recess to be able to do the full body jam!
