Rockfax Description
Once derided as too short and too polished - now that short is a virtue, and everything else is just as polished it doesn't seem so bad. Hard and slippery all the way. © Rockfax

FA. Mark Pretty 1987. Named at a time when the trad vs bolt argument was at its Peak.

Chuffed to onsight this but don't think it can be anywhere near 7c. If 'A Bigger Tail' is 7b+ then this is 7b max.

Jumped off at jugs below bulge. Needs another bolt or lower off here really. Cool microroute/boulder on a rope anyway and worth doing!

Cool, the polish slightly detracts from the climbing but certainly adds to the challenge. One play on a rope, two foot work errors, then a very happy climber :) first 7c

brilliant technical wall climb, despite what northern limestone has to say about it
