Short and technical. Could be found tricky by jug jockeys who have forgotten how to use their feet. Low in the grade. © Rockfax

A reachy move half way up meant it wasn't possible for me unfortunately

This got abit annoying after a while! I flashed up past the crux on a couple of days earlier, but then got scared and grab a clip on the slab as the clip was the wrong side of me and the hold was sweaty. It then took another 4 goes to send this, partly due to sun and partly due to being a spanner!

Project for the trip having failed on it many times over the previous 2 years. sent first time today, so happy. the good holds were ticked which probably helped a lot. good flash from Shaun.

Got it second try!

3rd go. Everything fell into place easily once I'd found the good bit of the big slot above the crux. Used it as a warm-up for Magnetus after the send because it's not pumpy!

Followed all the wrong chalk marks at the crux. Big holds to the crux and after. Bouldery, didn't try to redpoint it. Too many better routes to try!

Red pionted, then sent clean. At least 6 attempts. Skipped crux bolt, cant reach. GETS 7B IN NEW GUIDE?

1 fall on crux - the route right to a good pocket at crux is clearly from people dogging the route...crux move is to go left and use the sharp pockets/pinches up to hole...fingertips must be fresh! Good route and one I will return for

Gets a 7b in the guide, but its reasonable/soft at that. Got this 1st lead attempt after looking at the holds on a top rope
