Rockfax Description
A sustained pitch with lots of quality moves and rests up the groove-line to the right.. The crux is low-down and nowhere are the difficulties excessive. Start right of Absent Friends and climb to a thin break. An awkward move leads to another one to gain the groove which is followed to a lower-off on the right. © Rockfax

Bloke on a Rope 11 Aug, 2018 Lead G/U Haven't lead any limestone for ages wasn't trusting my feet or the polished gear placements, did the first crux OK then took 4 goes at selecting the right size nut to protect the move into the groove ,ended up with a wicked flash pump. So lowered off and had a word with myself, got it next go just needed to commit.
