Rockfax Description
Steep climbing up the back of the cave on good holds, finishing with some wide bridging. The long reach to the lower-off is tricky - grabbing it makes it easier. © Rockfax

ChrisLeigh19 17 Oct Lead First 7a+!!! Took quite a few goes to nail the sequence, very big moves, very steep. A couple of jams definitely helped, and got it on what would have had to be my final try as was getting too tired. Cut loose at the very end whilst on the tufa undercut, and everyone-including myself-thought I was gone. Power screaming somehow kept me on, just getting it done.
