Rockfax Description
A great pitch - if you can do the start! Make a couple of moves up Moonchild before reaching left to some sharp holds that allow a hard move up to better holds. Continue via sustained and varied climbing to a lower-off. © Rockfax

Getting on this today in the rain with the starting holds dripping was a bad idea!,Not a hope of doing it in today's conditions. Looks a decent line though, will have to get on it when it's dry.

Top roped twice. Haven't yet found way of doing start moves in one sequence. Moved over left early on as per description. Managed top section in one the second time.
