Rockfax Description
A more direct version of Zoolook breaking out left above the flake and then heading upwards via some sustained and fingery undercutting and crimping to rejoin Zoolook below its lower-off. An excellent and very pumpy pitch. Finishing up the top section of Baboo-Baboo gives ABH a good link-up at 8a. © Rockfax

Wft 18 Aug, 2019 Lead dog 5th session. Overlapping halves and felt much stronger (lighter?) but still wilted on 3rd go up. Reverted back to big throw at end of the sequence, less scary and more exciting. Back soon.

Wft 17 Feb, 2019 Lead dog Getting better. 2-ties. Small link of floor to end of overlap but nothing to write home about. Cruxes sorted but struggled with finding a high-percentage sequence for the last throw. A cold day but felt productive.
