Rockfax Description
The wall 3m right of the arete gives good climbing that eases with height. Exit over to the right. There are two poorer left-hand finishes: The Colostomy Finish, 7a - left towards the arete and over a small roof; and Physical Fizz, 6c+ - continue slightly higher then move left below a bolt. © Rockfax

Awesome climb! Had a rest on a couple of the bolts because I'd failed to notice the guidebook said it was a pumpy climb, some really great technical moves and some good flowy sections of climbing, very keen to repeat in one clean-swoop

Worked as a redpoint attempt. Did all the moves when working but on the redpoint failed halfway up just below probably the hardest move. Fell because I got too pumped, stopped thinking clearly and just tried to push through.

Had to rest a couple of times on this, I don't think I was really fully committed to it, the first moves are hard, once you have reached the flake things get slightly easier. Break out left to a good rest. Up the groove, then out right again, pumpy. Up and left slightly into a very slopery section. Then up and right through this. Although the holds are poor, it's all in balance. Keep going then finish on the (hard) moves of the adjacent 6a! feet high, pull on holds to reach good hold to right of belay chain.
