Rockfax Description
A long diagonal pitch (30m) with some good climbing. Low in the grade. Start up Goldfinger to the second bolt. Traverse right into the semi-rest of Minos. Continue right via a very hard move, almost to the belay of Gonads. Climb straight up to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: It currently finishes at the top of the crag VIA the Gonads belay and 2 pegs. The pegs may be replaced with bolts in the near future and a joint belay added for both routes higher up the crag.

Duncan Campbell 10 Oct, 2015 Lead dog Great technical climbing though with only one really hard section containing one really hard move. Tried it Nathan's way - too reachy. Maddies way - too on-off. Finally tried michaelas way and it seems the best of the bunch.
