Rockfax Description
An interesting route on great black flowstone. The move at the bulge requires a bit of thought and long arms help higher up. © Rockfax

βeta: Black slopers and mid-day heat don't mix! Fine route, didn't think the crux was all that reachy, but it wasn't helped by the sandy footholds - great route!

βeta: i managed to get the reach hold but only just.....some of the footholds are getting quite sandy so it may get harder with more traffic.

βeta: Excellent climbing but a soft touch at 7a if you find the heel hook quick enough.

βeta: Great route, and a challenge for my 175cm. I belive the crux is more interesting for short climbers, but surely more difficult.

Rocky 15 Oct Lead RP Managed to dispatch just before those crucial slopers came into full blown sun. Psyched to get an opportunity to get back to Arhi and finish this off. Such a cool route!

Rocky 7 Oct TR dog Too emotionally drained to try leading this after Underclings. So had a quick TR go. Oh my days. What an amazing route. Possibly to nicest route I've ever tried. Super psyched to head back for this.

climberchristy 14 Aug, 2016 Lead O/S What a great route! Climbs like grit boulder problem early on then really interesting crux moves then top wall slabby and crimpy. Deserves its 3 stars and 7a. Don't be put off by the 'easier for tall'. Yes it def would be easier if tall but I'm not that tall (5'9") and I found it fine.
