12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. Gain the beckoning flake in the front of the buttress from the right by strenuous undercutting to good holds above the roof. Pass this with difficulty then get motoring up the layback flakes on the head-wall. Pumpy and at the top end of the grade. © Rockfax

FA. Steve Bancroft 1977
