Rockfax Description
Climb the bold front face of the fin by an increasingly harrowing series of monkey-up-a-stick moves. A great and gripping outing which is well-named. © Rockfax

Duncan Campbell 14 May, 2018 TR Bold! There is a wild move up high for shorties that made it a little too unjustifiable for me to lead. Maybe with some more practice and at a less crucial time of year!?

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 14 May, 2018 Lead RP The best line on Grit? Placed side runners, simply because despite there being no mention of it in the guide a) it’s logical and b) that’s what was done on the FA. Still terrifying mind you!
