Rockfax Description
A brilliant route up the line of triangular grooves. The initial wall and groove leads to two juggy pockets. Continue up the wall above until a hard move right gains the finishing wall. Lower-off at the main break. © Rockfax

βeta: Brilliant route! Best route of its grade I've been on in the UK! Confusing finish with two bolts at the last draw...Great easyish climbing up to a great crux sequence which feels very exposed!

βeta: Stunning route of the very highest quality. 7a+ to the 'eye's' and a good shake, then blast to the boss. Shakeout and make the final ticky move to the first break. Relax, but don't blow the finish.
