Very similar to To Wish the Impossible, with escalating difficulties up the wall, narrow groove and headwall. © Rockfax

Second time today, found much better way for the groove and the top.

Sandbag top. Avoid the jug to the right. Pocket then head left. RHS is a sandbag

Couldn't do a couple of the moves without pushing off the right foot, which was too painful.

Awesome route at the end of the day. Glad I had enough in the tank for the top!

quiffhanger 26/May/13 Lead O/S

No as good as it's neighbours but worthwhile. Tricky top - bit of a desperate slap required to save the on-sight.

chiverstom 06/May/13 Lead dog

Fell off top bulge

ANC 11/Sep/12 Lead dog

Too much to ask for an OS at the end of the day...shattered...good day! Bit choosy and a misleading finnish...should have had a RP go but was spanked!

Ed Babs 09/Jun/12 Lead RP

Tricky finish.

Thought onsight was in the bag when I melted off finishing jugs with belay well within reach.
