Rockfax Description
10m. A fine test-piece from the Nadin era of the mid 1980s. Roll into the slot below the fin of Clippity Clop... (very large cam). Use the fin above to get established on the left-hand wall, from where a committing slap for the sloping top, and some extreme scrabbling, might just ensure victory. © Rockfax

Suprisingly physical. Another Nadin classic.

2nd ascent. TR 1st then solo. Was so physced I soloed with no spotters or people at crag. A bit of a head fuck when hanging on the rail knowing you can only go up.
