Rockfax Description
A devious classic - the name refers to a back flip in aerobatics and is not Cockney rhyming slang! Clipping and passing the second peg is desperate for the short! Climb round the overlap to the main horizontal break, step right then climb straight up the wall into a shallow groove. Finish through the blocky overhanging groove capping the face. Straightening out the loop is White Lightening E5 6b. © Rockfax

Brannock 09/Jul/17 Lead O/S

Really good, tricky moves low down, big mantelshelf at the top, exit through a holy bush, enough gear

Leo Woodhead 03/Jun/16 Lead O/S

Very enjoyable. Run out through the upper mantle section. Surprised at the grade, didn't feel 6a.

Theo Moore - UKC and UKH 19/Sep/15 Lead G/U

took a ground fall trying to clip a peg on another route, then led clean.... really run out after half way!

Tough moves around the overlap. Run out at the top but easier climbing.
