Rockfax Description
Extremely powerful climbing up the wall right of Darl with a thuggish crux. The initial wall is hard enough but at the bulge it really starts to pack a punch. © Rockfax

βeta: Just to correct the information surrounding the first ascent. Gary Gibson never used any form of aid on the first ascent neither in the form of a rest point or a direct pull on any of the pegs or bolt. Where this came from is unknown but a complete misnomer.

βeta: Awesome Route with sustained technical then butch moves to pass bulge! Well worth two stars.... However, 16m? it seems much shorter!

βeta: The route leads you on through some delightfully thin wall moves, into a powerful move past the second bolt and then the awkward and committing crux - much better than its neighbour.

Nick Sherring 11 Jun Lead RP 2 days of torrential rain and 90% humidity was no match for some full-on power screaming up the last few moves of this power fest today. Don't know how i stayed on the penultimate move - classic! Certainly not 7c either, happy to take the new guide 7c+ tick!
