Rockfax Description
A fine, historic route from the 80s, which has some stopper moves and regularly repels redpoint attempts. Start in the cave and swing out to gain the wall. Reaching the hanging groove up and left is taxing, climbing it is only marginally easier. Finish by stretching left to the big flake and lower-off, or try the next route. © Rockfax

Spent about 5 days on it in 93 - 94. Managed ground to flake (which is 8b according to Steve McClure. Never managed to complete the whole route though!)
