Rockfax Description
Another painful boulder problem start leads to the break and a jug, then make one more hard pull leftwards to gain the flake-line. The upper wall is comparatively easy. Missing the start by balancing up the old tree was Perfidious Primate, E4 6b. © Rockfax

βeta: Solid 8a now - the move from the jug (which could be gained from the tree) was E4 6b - now feels very hard (7c/7c+) in its own right, hold must have come off as I onsighted this section many years ago, and took about 20 goes to get the move within the last couple of weeks.

andy gravestock 12 May, 2009 Lead RP very painfull start to the point where the three finger pocket took off the skin on my middle finger. Hard pulling to the jug then you are faced with the hardest move on the route reaching to a side pull then a crank and a through allows you to reach a goodish crimp, Then the route is done had about 5 or 6 redpoints as somtimes wouldnt do the start and then would fail on the through out to left hand crimp but manged to do it in a day. top wall just feels like an good e4 woooop 8a in a day :)
