Rockfax Description
One of the original routes here but now much harder due to loss of holds. Climb to the slot on Cosmopolitan then traverse left onto the blank wall. Hard technical moves up here gain the belay. © Rockfax

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 23 Aug, 2018 Lead RP So many attempts, so many failures. I was sure I was going to do this after a few sessions, but it took so much more than I had expected - it's just so fluffable. Even today I failed on my first three attempts and was going to strip the draws, but Ramon persuaded me otherwise and I'm glad he did, because managed to scrape through next go.
