Rockfax Description
A very bouldery route with just the one hard move. It is easier to top-out and walk around than lower off. © Rockfax

Basically a highball boulder with 3 bolts, but lovely moves with one hard move that makes it feel on grade.

Spent a bit of time at the top trying to go the wrong way and then figured out the right little crimp. Hard enough for 6C and felt way harder than the 7A next to it!

Had one warm up go in trainers thinking it was a 5. Sent it clean second go.

Took me a bit of time to work out the crux. Finally got it, but too tired to then red-point.

Kyle Goslan 17/May/12 Lead RP

Got past the last bolt OS then missed the crimp. Cleaned it second the rain.

with Mike Moore
climbingrev 16/Apr/12 TR dog

Fell a couple of times on this one. Route seems to head slightly to the right by top bolt. There is a very attractive crimp off left, but this takes you more than my arm's span away from the last but one hold. Good.

Keendan 04/Apr/12 Lead RP

Slipped off the sidepull moves first go.

1 fall when a large block ripped off an undercut. This should not change the route grade but was dangerous and was unavoidable.

hung about at the break working myself up to the hard finishing move - and then cruised through it thinking 'well that was easy'. nice when that happens :-)
