Rockfax Description
Now considered to be better than the route name it was originally given. A difficult bulge and finishing crack supply the interest. © Rockfax

Managed second go but desperate at the anchor. I feel like it should have felt easier but was in a mind funk today. Easy climbing to the rooftop. Nice bouldery moves at the crux.

Worked out the top bit; but no more strength to redpoint it today...

WillGW 18/Jun TR RP

Bouldery start, easy middle and super bouldery finish. Couldn't link the final moves.

adamsriches 27/May Lead dog

Easy up until the tough boulder moves at the top, needed a few tries to get through.

Happy to onsight this. Stiff start, easy middle, steepens before the roof, then a good techy move to exit the roof and get the chains.

Tried this a couple of years ago and couldn't do it, this time easy.

OllieWall 05/Jun/16 Lead RP

Lots of lose and missing holds on top crux section made it quite a trick little number

2nd go. Easy going until the roof. Big pumpy moves up to the penultimate clip. The last few moves to the lower off felt pretty desperate at first but are actually ok

Bailed a year before on my second outdoor trip. First go while putting the quickdraws in today.

Absolutely solid route; couldn't get through the moves. Fair play for Angus for getting it clean in the end.

Not that shit! Bit loose in the middle and hard moves at the top but not bad climbing at all. Bit sharp though.

'orrible. sharp and dusty. got to the roof and then realised the huge undercut sounded very hollow - cue rapid descent...

Not too bad! Only a touch harder than Julie Ocean, and of the same quality, just more dust. More traffic and it would clean up to respectable quality.
