Rockfax Description
A splendid pitch that features a forceful finger-crack. Start in an overhung sentry-box. Move up and right to clear the overhang and gain the wall above. Climb the wall rightwards on good finger-holds to the base of a thin crack in the upper wall. The fine, thin crack is climbed with difficulty to a short headwall. © Rockfax

Absolutely swimming in bird shite and other related mank on the lower section but otherwise great. Crack and top was very enjoyable.

What a route! Stunning! Tonroped it clean. It goes straight on my wish list to lead.

Good, but the hard bit is only 2 clips or so. A bit imbalanced to be a top 50 route...

Exciting thin crack with small feet at the top makes up for a average first half. Well worth doing for the upper section.

Awesome route, felt a bit run out and tenuous in the finger groove - great locks but hard to trust when hot and sweaty!
