Rockfax Description
Follow the steep wall to the weakness through the right end of the large roof. The crux is on the bottom wall but many fall off from high up (hence the name) so remember to milk the mid-height rest. © Rockfax

stp 7 Jul, 2018 Lead RP Did using Greg's 'strap on' on and knee bar beta. The appropriately named 'downgrader' probably does knock a grade off this route. Felt similar in difficulty to That was the River and Loco. Loco might even be harder. First redpoint today, after a rest day. Glued hold seems solid.

There is more to life than doing the same route every time you go climbing! Didnt use the knee bar method but got a good heel toe for the crux and used a knee scum going over the first roof (no knee pad). Well happy.
