Rockfax Description
A pleasant, open groove. Super-technical and imaginative moves on the crux. High in the grade, and a touch run-out. © Rockfax

FA. Neal Heanes - The name tells of a gnarly first ascent for leader and belayer alike! 09/Jul/1995

Outstanding route! A real puzzler but the moves are easy once you finish the recon (from big rests); if you're climbing harder grades I think 6b is on the nose but I can understand how those at their limit might find it hard. Definitely recommended, *** and well bolted.

Technical in a couple of places, but definately more so at the crux. Interesting route
