A stunning route that looks totally unlikely from below, with great moves on perfect rock and a post crux romp to the chains. © Rockfax

One of the best. Huge wall. Very steep bulge, rest ledge, then steep wall on square cut holds. Go for it with good footwork and a fingery pump

Great technical wall. Looks so unlikely from the ground but the holds are all there. Pumpy crux and one random wet hold.

Flashed after Charlie bolt to bolted. Rested in the upper groove with a hand jam until the pump passed.

Does wall climbing get any better than this? A big thunderstorm struck just after I'd done it. had to leave the draws in place overnight.
