Rockfax Description
After a powerful start it relents to just technical and fingery climbing until the last move above an undercut shake. Finish direct using a sloper and gain the lower-off. Trending left into Quality Control before the last move is a good 7b. © Rockfax

Hard 7b+/ soft 7c in my opinion. Cool climbing and very hard to onsight.

The start is nails but would go with a bit of work. Since we only had the afternoon here as a stopover on route to Yorkshire, didn't fancy faff

Tried on Monday (one go to work out the moves and one lead attempt). Came back today and did it first route of the day, first go. Good moves but felt of similar difficulty to Blockhead.
