Rockfax Description
Good technical moves are the main ingredients of this often-overlooked route. Climb the initial wall, then pull rightwards over the bulge. Make some perplexing moves up and across the left-leaning groove before finishing up a thin crack. © Rockfax

May have gone a bit too far right at the bottom to avoid wet pocket, didn't expect to manage the rest so surprised myself! Tough!

I couldn't get up this clean, then immediately onsighted a 7b, go figure.

Slightly strenuous start leads to amazing technical moves on the slab. There are a few possible methods but with confident feet the moves flow so nicely.

Really good session working out the moves. Not impossible.

If you're like me and have no natural climbing abilities, this is a really hard climb! Think I worked out how to do it all but the lay-back high foot move might need a bit of hanging to get me through. Somewhere between loving and hating it - excited to come back!

Brilliant climb! Well worth a go.

Excellent route - fairly consistent throughout. Somehow managed to slip off while smearing on the slab and pulling up a handful of slack to clip.

Absolute wandering nightmare! Strangely enjoyable though.
