Rockfax Description
A fine climb up the clean face and left-trending finger-flake. Climb the lower wall on superb rock to an overlap. Reach left to a thin flake-crack which leads strenuously to the top and a good finishing hold. © Rockfax

Last did it about 12 or so years ago, no memories. Seemed easy and logical to step left and get a rest before the final flake. Didn't remember that being possible. Very good, but not brilliant. Has arguably the hardest move on the lower wall. Thought the RH (Mute Swan) finish was better.

Bob Conley 30/Aug/16 Lead β

Nice climbing throughout, sporty bolt spacing. Got a good rest to the left of the bottom of the final flake.

Tried to lead it but couldn't resist the temptation of grabbing the quickdraw at the third bolt. A bit too run out for my liking, especially when you don't find the good holds! No problem on second.

Relatively easy sequence of moves, you've just got to fight the pump. Lovely moves on good and positive, but spaced holds (bearing in mind I'm only 5'8"), although the key to the route is footwork. Came off the polished sloping top hold below the chain - should have gone for the better higher block. One to go clean next time!!
