Rockfax Description
Start below the left-hand side of a prominent undercut. Hard moves lead to the break, and then move right to a rest in the base of the groove. Pull back left and follow the bolts with a hard move to an undercut and a sprint finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Unless lots of stuff has fallen of this, I remember it feeling steady 7c. Bouldery start with a steady finish. It did have a crap belay at the time, hope this has been improved since I did it. Andy F

βeta: Feels more like 7C+ compared to other 7C's at Kilnsey such as Metal Guru and Biological Need. A good route with a powerful start followed by sustained wall climbing with a great finish over the roof.

zv 12 May Lead dog Some progress, fell by the end of the crux on the move to the undercut just above bolt number 3. Then did a good link to nearly the top. Small amount of work required to climb efficiently through the final roof.

stp 8 Jun, 2018 Lead dog A well named route with a vicious crux. After two tries I'd injured a finger and so stopped climbing for the day. An extended 12 move boulder problem to a break after which it's a nice, pumpy 7b to the top. Shame about the crux move as the rest of it is really good. Not one to go back to.
