Rockfax Description
A direct on Zarke is bold and reachy. Memorable moves throughout but a possible ground-fall should you muff it unless your belayer is on his toes! © Rockfax

Didn't fancy the prospect of a groundfall so I checked out the last runout move first, realised it was easy then lead it.

covered in chalk, looked like someone had been at it with a paint brush.

Ridiculous, struggled more on the mantleshelf HVS move than the E4 top. Would get it clean but tired myself out methinks
