Rockfax Description
A good line that is low in the grade and can be dusty. Weird tufa pipes and formations show the way to a fairly tiring finish. Use the lower-off to the right. © Rockfax

Keep away for a while... Nest + chicks. Apparently there is currently a Fulmar nest at the top right now + u will not complete this without getting spat at with stinking oil, lots of, + shitted on severaltimes, + your face + eyes pecked at! They are quite big birds + pretty aggressive + will dive bomb really closely too. I haven't been on this, just a climber described the experience he had, on this date logged !

This climb is incredibly good as can only get cleaner/better with traffic. It is right at the grade and gives great flowing climbing from the start right through to the top.

the dustyness means you don't have to chalk up, which is nice. some good flowstone moves at the 3rd bolt. it's neighbour on the right looks lovely. can't wait to be healed and fit.
