Rockfax Description
An enticing but bold line. Climb carefully up the shallow open groove to the small overhang, where there is a thread and a good hold. Gain the thin flake above, step left and finish more easily. © Rockfax

Thread needs replacing!

Tried to power to the thread without any lower gear,got 1 move off, freaked a bit and downclimbed the entire thing. Top tactics...

Excellent climbing, but hard (strenuous, sustained and technical) and some marginal gear below the thread.

David Kay 09/Sep/12 Lead O/S

Good sustained climbing. Small wires protect the lower section well until you get to the thread.

Technically easy, but if you fell off the crux, you'd hit the ground. Nice climbing.

Dropped a top roap down. Powerfull moves and no let up till the top. Good route

Fun to motor up on TR. Hardest part of leading would be hanging about fiddling small gear in.
