Rockfax Description
12m. The bulging groove is approached via a steep wall and deep break (large Friends which get in the way of your hands). Lean left to gain the groove and follow it with sustained interest. High in the grade. Thought by some to be only worth a brace of stars - stingy sods! © Rockfax
