Rockfax Description
Gradually steepening climbing with an intense sequence midway. Start at the left-hand end of a high ledge, below a shallow corner. Climb the shallow corner for about 10m until a line of bolts on the left leads up to a bald wall, just above an overhang. Thin moves up the wall gain easier, but bulging ground that leads to the top. © Rockfax

Tried to onsight which didn't go very well. Choosing a slightly greasy mono fest as a potential first onsight of the grade probably wasn't the best idea :) Colors was in better condition.

Favourite portland route so far. Phenomenal climbing. Helps to have a bit of a reach on you. First rp.

Tough to read on the onsight. Almost made it through on 1stRp (somehow) but peeled off and took a whipper.
