Rockfax Description
The best of the bunch. A really good pitch starting up the overhanging pocketed wall to the right of the cave. Dynamic moves utilising the various pockets lead to smearing and pulling on undercuts to overcome the bulge and reach the final pumpy corner above. © Rockfax

Working the moves then ripped the tip off a finger. Need to find some short person beta in the middle section

Dogged up on draws but went to the wrong lower off. Doh!! Had a top rope burn and then had a go on lead. Not enough power to get through the cruxy section and had no idea where to go at the top. Dogged up to the correct lower off and then worked out a sequence to the top. Hard climbing and scorching temps didn't help.

Strung some moves together but needs more work. Enjoyed the groove at top - more techy less steep!

Dogged and sliced a finger up in the first 2 finger pocket. The rest of the route felt amazing! Maybe worth 3 stars. It felt hard but I loved it.

Second attempt, rested twice, got all the moves fine. Next time fresh it'll go, provided I remember the sequence!
