Rockfax Description
A harder version of Rubicon, with more bolts than you can usually clip. More independent than it looks, but still a bit of sideline attraction when compared to the main event just to the left. © Rockfax

2nd go of the day- possibly tried it a couple of years ago but can't be sure. Good climbing.

Not sure why it only gets one star. Just as good as Rubicon. 2nd RP attempt.

Really good but top just kept getting more and more soaked. Come back on a dry day

Dropped one move, really annoying as the rest of that burn was perfect....

3rd go, only just, kept on only getting the tips of my fingers over the flat holds just before the lip, lots of swinging around too...

Had a quick look at the holds and put the clips in from lowering off Rubicon. Worthwhile.
