Rockfax Description
A modern classic - very steep and pumpy. Start as for Grossville, before trending rightwards up the bulging wall to a roof crack. Cross the roof and swing out to the apex of the buttress. © Rockfax

Fell a few moves from the top on the flash - gutted! Must come back.

One go to get the draws in and one attempt, quite close to getting it, super fun route :-)

Amazing pitch! Will be back.

Amazing juggy steepness. 3rd go. Didn't feel any harder than Grossville.

john rensten 30/May/16 Lead dog

awesome climbing...cut loose on one hand coming out of the big roof (not stylish)...might go next session if I can convince someone to put the clips in for me

Great route, really pleased to get the onsight, had to try hard. One of few routes entirely in the shade.

Seconding to get the draws out.

2nd go. Annoyed to miss the on-sight: gave up just below the half-height rest after misreading the first crux.
