Rockfax Description
An enticing and subtle line starting near the top of the slope. Climb up a crack and then out leftwards to a groove and follow this to the top. Good climbing. © Rockfax

R2B 19/Oct/13 Lead O/S

Super muddy but some really nice moves. Felt v.high in the grade but possibly because of the mud. Top moves out of the pocket felt more like 6a to me.

First Climb of the day, bloody cold rock. Not bad considering but needed some assistance from a very tight rope. This time finshed going to the left of the bulge which worked ok

Again we were rubbish with Andy getting to 4th bolt, I could not even get past the second. The start go up to the right of the bolt and then with the bolt at chest height, hands on the break line and right foot in the large hole take a long step left to the gurly foothold and traverse
