Rockfax Description
A superb route which, despite being rebolted, is still a scary proposition. The lower crack is straightforward but the upper wall proves taxing for its whole length with a particularly testing fingery rock-over. Many will find the final run-out worthy of E5 (it used to be a bit longer, and above a hand-placed bolt). © Rockfax
