Rockfax Description
Excellent roof climbing up the main line of the roof, which is more of a sprint than a marathon. Scramble up to the ledge then reach out and clip a bolt or two. Take a deep breath and move into upside-down mode. The first and last pulls are the hardest. Said to be low in the grade by muscle-bound gorillas. © Rockfax

I'm sure it was a different set of holds to last time so maybe should claim an onsight.

A bit greasy and damp when we turned up so long way off a flash. Went easy enough on first redpoint after cleaning the holds up a bit. Nice line, good climbing.
