A route for those who like them short, sharp and well protected. Amble up the lower section and assault the central crack in the white headwall. Brief but excellent. © Rockfax

Coggo 30 Jun Lead RP Very short hard section that was not in its driest state got the better of me and saw my first and second falls on trad gear. Fortunately I had littered the crack with gear for a safe catch. After coming down and calming down, I shoved my little fingers in the crack and pulled my way to the glory jugs, with surrounding climbers yelling, use your feet. Quite the experience
