Rockfax Description
A good, strong line that gradually increases in difficulty with height gained. Start left of a low overhang, at a bolt above a vegetated ledge. Climb up vegetated ground to a long groove line and follow it, passing a bulge on the left, to the top. © Rockfax

JackMac 18 Oct, 2015 Lead dog Excellent route, more people should try this - before we arrived there was absolutely no chalk on the holds. It took me a couple of goes to work out all the moves then ran out of juice before I was able to RP. Less pumpy than Portland heights but probably harder moves.
