Rockfax Description
A fine little climb that packs a mean punch low down. Start at the right end of the overhangs at the base of the pock-marked wall.
Make a steep pull up and left to good holds above the overhang and then make another hard move to enter the base of a small corner. Follow this more easily to the top. © Rockfax

cocomosey 6 Sep, 2018 2nd β Tried the lead but after three attempts and retreats, Aare led instead. At 6'2'' he could reach the good high hold to get into the crack no bother and made it look fair for the grade. At 5'8'' I couldn't reach the same hold and found it dead tricky. I found it hard to protect this move too... it's just high enough above the two bomber cams at the start to make me worry you might deck out.
