Rockfax Description
A good, varied pitch with a fingery start and, butch finish. Climb the thin groove and wall above it to the upper break. A powerful sequence up the bulging headwall gains the top and a lower-off. © Rockfax

The onsight was going well until I got pumped beyond hope and could not execute the powerful sequence after the mini roof

Quite a hard boulder at the start followed by easier ground to massive jugs just bellow the roof. Strong move over the roof to finish on a slopey pinch and undercut. Dropped it a couple times on the pinch sorting feet out but after decent rest this felt ok. Good route, 4th go.
