Rockfax Description
A worthwhile route with a safe crux. Start at the right-hand of two cracks in the back of the bay. Climb a slab and corner to a well-positioned roof crux. Block belay in the quarry above. This also acts as an abseil approach point if needed. © Rockfax

Tough in two sections - felt really hard for the grade

Felt quite a bit harder than Hackney's Hammer. Thrutchy moves through the lower groove (including whole arm jam) and roof crux (finger lock / layback / hip jam!)

Nice route, very interesting manoeuvre to get over the roof at the top.
