Rockfax Description
Great technical face moves, but the contrived start spoils the overall feel of the route. Don't touch the chimney, it is off limits. © Rockfax

βeta: I think the moves at the start are great - technical and sustained with a great (and hard) rock-over after the third bolt but perhaps I wouldn't have discovered this if I hadn't needed more than one go to do the thin moves above the overlap. One of the hardest F6c+ routes I've done - perhaps I'm rubbish at slabs.

βeta: If this has been overwhelmingly voted as a 2 star route, why hasn't it been transferred as such in the guidebook? Well worth the two stars, really varied and balanced and the chimney doesn't feel too close.

Rockmonkey1977 30 May, 2016 Lead dnf Fell on the onsight attempt (yet another failed onsight) just before the slabbier section. Was struggling to work out what to do, then I slipped and took a load of skin of my forearm so lowered to clean the wound. Matt dogged his way to the top making some good moves past my high point. I hadn't enjoyed the route so happily let him clean it rather than face further failure and tenuous, crimpy climbing.
