Rockfax Description
Climb the tricky initial crack (polished) to the Pulpit then tackle the continuation, by climbing out right to a blobby boss then back left up into the crack. Another fine climb maybe overshadowed just a little by its immediate neighbour. © Rockfax

βeta: 'Polished' is an understatement! I'll have to take Nick's word on it being only the first couple of metres as I failed to leave the ground.

βeta: Probably the only polished route at Wimberry, and fortunately it's only the first couple of metres that are polished. The rest of the route is excellent.
