Rockfax Description
Great gear and superb moves on the upper section make this one a must do. Take a direct line to the roof then pull over into the interesting main groove. The finish is a touch polished. © Rockfax

Rock to Fakey 27/May Lead O/S

Harder than Freda, good az if not better too. Again, nerves and slow climbing trying to get good gear, especially to pass the bulgey block, nerves then had me squidged up in the space above, but i eventually relaxed enough to get my feet out and find i could balence ok with big left side hold to place next gear. Apparently people get pumped here trying to put in next gear and fall off, i can imagine it easily, i was getting there, the left side lay got me cool though. Great route, deserves 2 *.

Tried on lead, could not make the top move. Escaped to the diff on the right. Tried on second and only just managed the final move, Anyon eover 5'5" shouldn't have a problem but below that there is really nothing much to gain height and the good hold. Gear is good.

Hard top section, fell off twice on to a bomber No5 nut before finally pulling through and toping out. Think it was my shear fear of falling again that scared me to the top! Ooh, and a nice climbing fellow gave me some fancy herbal tea between my second and third attempt! Perhaps it was magic tea??!

Found it a big reach to flat and (today) greasy holds. I was very stretched out, and couldn't get a left foot up near my body. Pretty much chinned up it in the end. Had a good wire 1 and Friend 00 at crux, and felt secure enough.
