Rockfax Description
An excellent climb. Ascend the slim groove to moves left at half-height. Some more difficult climbing gains the easier curving overlap above. © Rockfax

gav 3 May, 2016 TR dog Initially got the wrong line of bolts and tried the much harder (unlisted?) route to the left. After failing miserably, reset onto the correct path. Managed to the top of groove in one, then crux and through to top after many many attempts in a couple of sections.

ebf 14 Sep, 2014 TR dog Andy did well to dog his way to the top on a "lead", so I top roped it. Mostly OK, but continuous all the way up until the finishing crack/jugs, with IMO the hardest moves to get to the 4th bolt. Spaced protection and the 3rd will be a bugger to clip. Will work and RP another time.
