Rockfax Description
Spectacular climbing but with a stopper move low down. After that it's jug-pulling time with a virtual hands-off rest possible. Popular. © Rockfax

Hard route. The boulder problem is hard. Tried this route 4 years ago and still feels just as hard! 7c for the short.

Right hand deep into undercut, left foot crosss flag, left hand under cut pull up clip left hand. Left hand to 2 finger pocket by clip, right hand to left of 2 pockets, right heel, right hand to next pocket. Use smaller hole as a thumb catch. Left foot wide and drop knee, higher if possible. Pull to lower side pull but get the top as a pinch with small hole for thumb. Right foot in and pop for better left hand. ??? Feet up and crods right into next side pull to glorious shelves. Juggy finish, right knee bar for rest.

Wanted to try this last year but it was busy. Wasn't expecting the bouldery crux, and so dogged it through there. Quite tough. But lead it through to the top after that move which I was happy with. Engineered a good rest on one of the stalactites. Come back to it next year with a bit more dynamism!

Well 'ard... especially if you're short (that's a good excuse anyway). Too bouldery for me

botched the onsight, tried to dyno past the crux, failed spectacularly!

Used my height to do the crux so overall it felt fairly easy for the grade for me.

4th go, would have been 2nd but insteadof neatly slotting my fingers into a slot I decided to hit the wall beside the slot...

Had a quick go at the boulder problem to find some short person beta for Jake. Never really intented to give it a proper go. Felt like it would be cool though.

Cool route, hard bouldery section in the middle, with enough time/goes maybe it would have gone. good fun none the less.
