Rockfax Description
The hard lower wall has a stopper move. Difficult moves going left to the base of the interesting upper groove prove to be the undoing of many. © Rockfax

Not my finest climbing, had trouble with the long moves between rubbish holds, and the clips. Found a nicer way on the right but nowhere near the bolt.

Alex Winter 09/Apr/16 Lead dog

Stopped repeatedly by the stopper move. All very depressing.

Made a big dynamic move for a jug, turned out to be a sloper. Ran out of daylight to have a second go, next time. Great moves from the ledge upwards!

Felt OK, but got too hot.

Worked the crux sequence out, way to hot to climb! Ready to red point when conditions permit.

Jonathan Emett 08/Jun/14 Lead dnf

Worked out a plausible sequence, but too hot to try it ... plus, ice cream seemed more important at that point

Took a while to get this, crux move I think. Easy once that's over.
