Rockfax Description
The long curving overlap defining the right-hand side of the North Buttress gives this hard classic. Climb to the overlap and head left taking in some delicate and awkward climbing to reach the crux pull on to the vertical headwall. © Rockfax

Happy to do this as I wasnt sure id get back here this year. Worked out a better way of doing the top bit which helped. Mostly steady, really good traddy climbing. Now urgent, a different proposition...

Good flash go (with John's beta) and then a fluffed redpoint; both ended moving into the jug where it joins UA

Climbed by accident first go today! Was supposed to be going up bolt to bolt to work out a sequence but got half way and found a back and foot no hander so pressed on! Buzzing.

Still not sure how I managed to get stood on the jugs at the end of the hard bit. Absolutely boxed
