Rockfax Description
A worthwhile route with good moves all the way and with the harder climbing based around its mid-section. The moves on the bubbly wall can sometimes be damp. © Rockfax

Worked out crux, which I got through twice but twice I got pumped out going to penultimate bolt.. great route, I just need more stamina...

Crux in the middle section on conglomerate part. Doable but not if you are tired after first part.

Got second go - took a while to figure the beta for the tricky finger crux.

Fell at the mid height crux going right on poor chalked crimps ( one too many throws hoping to find a decent hold...). Worked out a sequence going left that suited me far better and sent second try with relative ease.

Thought this was a 6b as didn't have the guide to hand - 6c is about right though, too tired at the end of the day to clean. Easy start to crux in the middle section with pulls on small holds. Pumpy. Nice route.

Hard move at half height. Blew the onsight taking ages deciding which holds to use. Somehow ended up using the worst of the three. Jug hauling before and after with a slightly airy feel.
