Rockfax Description
Great climbing requiring some powerful moves in the steep lower half and some insecure wall moves on the exposed face of the upper pillar. © Rockfax

Start not as bad as it looks, tough moves crossing the pillar higher up.

Took a long time to actually do the steep lower section for fear of fluffing it! Fine once you go for it. Very delicate and pretty droppable higher up. Awesome top out. Felt like a little adventure!
