Rockfax Description
Despite a poor start the upper groove offers superb unrelenting climbing; just keep pushing on and the holds and runners keep arriving. Protection is good once you reach the crack, though the easy bottom wall and grotty cave are worrying! © Rockfax

I got really pumped, failed to work out the best sequence to establish myself above the sloping ledge, and fell off. Great route!
