Rockfax Description
The acute corner and left-hand continuation is a superb line, and has climbing to match. Start on boulders below the corner.
Climb the corner to the overhang where it splits. Move left and make a perplexing move up into the continuation corner. Follow the corner to the next overhang and pull up rightwards into a short, steep overhang-capped corner that is quitted on the right. © Rockfax

Did the crux after much fight but could not do the second crux by the roof! Gutted

Fell on the crux first go. Got it second. Brilliant route, but bloody hard. Fiend and I both agreed it was trad 6a, and noticeably harder than any move on Grand Plage (Variation Start). Finish is awkward too.

Leaving the corner felt desperate and took a long while to figure out. Not sure if a good hold over the lip has broken? The top out is rotten and loose too. But a good route none the less.

Got absolutely spanked by the move around the corner. Managed to bridge up very high but couldn't do the hard pull around - I may have been doing it wrong.

Luke lead it like I pro, I fell off a lot and was absolutely shot by the time I finally made it to the top!

After a bit of a wobble. Ollie refused to take on the crux so had no choice but to quest on. Grateful now.

Annoyingly got the sequence wrong on the moves going round the projecting corner and fell off. Got it right second go, then spent a while figuring out the last hard move before the easy section in the middle but it was fine in the end. The overhanging finish was pretty hard and it took me three goes (climbing back down for a rest) to do it but on the third go I figured out a better way of doing it and it wasn't too bad. The next few moves to the top were hard work though. Great line, tiring pitch! With Davor on the BMC international meet. I think this was the single hardes pitch that I climbed all week.
