Rockfax Description
Typical of Rubicon; short, hard and becoming harder as bits drop off. The difficulties are confined to the steep middle section where a powerful rock-over is required. There is a lower-off just below the final bulge. © Rockfax

Really chuffed with how I got on with this. After dropping the final moves five times in a session two years ago I've felt loathed to come back onto it, but this was a surprisingly uplifting session. This year it WILL happen!!

one of the few dry things this morning! Did most of the moves and got a feel for the ones I didn't do. Hard

Made progress, managed to hit the side pull out left and figure out some of the moves beyond. Still hard though!!!

All moves done, after a bit of cheeky beta from a passer by. Only a quick 1/2hr dog as end of day. Next time

Scott clipped the 2nd, I got to the 3rd ground up then dogged and lowered from the 4th, looks completley impossiblie afer that!

Jumped on and felt hard to me! The crimps in the middle section are small and sharp - shredder!! Will go back to try ...

Only really about 6 metres of hard climbing, but that bit is very hard.

Hard. Any ideas how to do the move without the nasty match?
