Rockfax Description
Another route with a bold feel. From the mantel on the two previous routes trend right up the steeping wall to the break and a good rest in a shallow cave. Pull left out of this and sprint up the wall above. The route contains an old bolt runner above the roof, but it shouldn't really! © Rockfax

Top rope solo on a shunt! Felt easy moves but was on a top rope, did noticed a distinct lack of gear would have felt quite bold on lead!

Nice, bolt just where you need it! Tricky high foot move then lovely climbing to top.

This felt just as hard as Flick of the Wrist to me.

Hardest climb done to date. Some really nice moves gave a real feel of accomplishment at the end.

Its a good route to climb, but you can't really do it any other way then top roping, because of the lack of gear holds. Its not a particular hard climb and has a gd feel to it, I might have to solo sometime

50' up and no runners! Somebody had nicked the pegs - time to back off!
