Rockfax Description
A powerful and technical route that has some great climbing weaving between the bolts. Gain the first bolt from the left. From the undercut in the overlap, make a powerful move up and right to a side-pull. Big moves on good holds lead to the second roof (possible knee bar/rest). Move up to the bolts on the headwall and then traverse left to a hard pull onto a ledge. A desperate slab move leads up to the lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Straightforward climbing to a hard and slippery crux pulling over the roof by the second bolt. Long move up then a tricky traverse left and a delicate finish.

The lanky man 4 Aug, 2017 TR dog Too hard for me right now, but cool to have a go on. Had to pull on draws past some of the hardest moves...but a fun route all the same. One day maybe

ksjs 22 Sep, 2013 Lead RP Draws in then 4 gos where either I persisted in using duff crux beta or didn't know what to do with my feet once through the crux. Done next go. Really good, nice contrast from RF (I thought this easier than RF, I do wonder though if beta is the key to this i.e. I was shown good beta but without is maybe why people are saying hard 7c?)
