Rockfax Description
The best route at Stoney. It follows the groove to a bulge, which provides the first hard section, to a rest in a recess. Head up the bulging crack above to an old peg, then make hard bridging moves up and left to another crack. This last section is pumpier on the legs than the arms, if you do it right. © Rockfax
