7a, S1. The right-hand groove from the hanging pillar start. One of the best deep water solos around. © Rockfax

Really good route, spooky detached-looking flake hold in the groove.

Desperate struggle in the getting into the start!

Brilliant, cut loose on a jug which then moved, worrying...

Very distinctive shark fin holds. Brilliant route especially after the sandbag that is the John Williams.

I continue being unable to climb this route, still not sure which way it goes around the arete, down a bit, no?

The traverse is now dry, but the groove is still too wet.

Too wet past the arete.

Bomber fist jams really help control the pump on the top section.

absolutely horrendous, swam in to the ledge at the bottom and did the climb soaking wet. Felt like I was about to slide off every move.

Amazing route. Finally suceeded aafter several attempts over several years of being pumped out and greased off. Traversed in from the corner. There aint no holds in the final groove!
