Rockfax Description
A gymnastic outing up the lower half of the wall, with a much easier finish. Start below the long, low roof at the right-hand side of the starting ledge, 2m right of a blank open groove.
Make a move up left to a good incut and use another directly above to reach the horizontal break under the roof. Reach up right around the roof to good sidepulls and layback around the lip to get established on the wall. Climb the wall to the mid-height horizontal break and then work leftwards to a corner and easier finish. © Rockfax

foobar123 24 Jun, 2018 Lead O/S Bottom slab is trickier than it looks, but good gear in the break. Thought I'd be able to reach round and get a nut in the crack before the crux, but no such luck so just committed to the moves. Slightly strenuous getting gear in after that, but the rest of the moves are nowhere near as hard. Lovely little thrutch to finish off with too!

Chimnastics 2 Jun, 2017 2nd Fell off the bottom on my first try. Any thoughts of having an onsight go at Wet Barnacle rapidly ceased! Tricky bottom section due to really bad feet. Turning the roof wasn't too bad.
