Rockfax Description
The groove on the right leads to a break from where technical, strenuous and reachy moves allow the wall to be climbed rapidly. Originally given a pretty hard HVS. © Rockfax

βeta: An appealing route with good climbing and good pro where needed. It is very easy even for the E2 6a it's given in the printed guide - more like easy E2 5c (unless you're *very* short). Worthwhile.
