Rockfax Description
A fingery climb, and the first of the superb flowstone pitches on this section of the crag. Start by climbing the wall just right of the bolts to good holds. Ascend the increasingly-technical wall via a thin move and small undercut to an easier finish on the left. © Rockfax

Fairly short lived crux a few moves above a no hands rest. Caught ledge fever and went up and down a lot working out the moves. Felt easier than I expected when I finally committed. Get on it!!! but maybe take an extended draw/cojones for the crux clip.

Fell on the onsight attempt at the crux trying to move dynamically from the 2 finger pocket but I had wasted a load of energy moving right to a tiny crimp to get the QD in. Then on my second attempt I tried Matts cool heel hook beta which was superb and went straight to the top. I need more technique/ trickery...

good route, doesnt look it from the ground. big moves lead the the flowstone crux, and then bucket hauling to the top, some scary rock at the top tho!

An interesting selection of holds chalked up around the crux ... the most obviously chalked of which I couldn't find a useful way to use at all so ignored!

Took a rest at the pocket - really shouldn't have cos I'd worked out the move, just failed to commit firs time. Nice and technical at the bottom, gets a bit more strenuous at the top. Seemed pretty easy compared to Reptile Smile that I tried next.

A bit tougher than i remember....looks like there is an easier sequence at the crux.

first try at this redpointing malarky. one clean toprope then on the sharp end. twice wanted to rest but fascist belayer wouldn't let me. glad of it afterward. crux for me getting into the double undercling at mid height. so pumped by top. slept well that night.
