A steep pull and tough rock-over gets you through the overlap (first bolt over bulge) to gain the pleasant slab. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A hard dyno or lock-off is needed at the start, the rest is easy. Arguably much harder than 5c+!

Hard 5+ would definitely say the first move is the hardest, big jugs to hold but a big rock over and a big reach to next holds then onto pretty blank slab, good feet required, did this route twice on TR, rested and took a couple of falls on the first attempt. Only took one fall on second attempt. 6a maybe on the first move, really pleased with this climb, need to repeat on lead, but a big fall risk before clipping.

F6a at the start for sure - very unbalanced!

Some degree of flexibility required at the start!

The start is a pig - bridging would be cheating!

Had to step back down several times before managing the crazy rockover onto the slab!

One hard move at the start. Not the world's best warm-up
