Rockfax Description
This fantastic route ranks as one of the best of its grade in the country. The steep lower section gives dynamic climbing on reasonable holds. Once through the lower bulge the stunning upper wall is about as good as it gets. Harder since the loss of a small bush used at the start. © Rockfax

Stefan_TR 5 Aug, 2017 Lead RP Great route felt very powerful/bouldery down low but maybe made harder due to a very wet start. Got it on last try of the day 7th go. Really had to dig deep to find the energy to do the whole thing that late in the day.
