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

Delicate crux in the thin crack, made easier with bridging. Great line.

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...

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