Rockfax Description
The thin flake in the blunt nose has a huge reach (wire) and then a sprint for the rounded top. A midget gem - f6B+ above pads. © Rockfax

A fine micro route. Top out would be scary above pads so choose to use the perfect cam slot to protect it!

Retro flash, done above pads. Felt easy tonight, walk feet up and jam the left foot in the crack and it is much nearer to (or even) 5c to get to the break than the 6b given in the BMC guide. Class micro route/very highball problem :)

First time today but flailed around above pads a couple of years ago:)

Did the boulder variation, very big move with an always watching crowd. To scared to top it out.

Had watched Nick do it a few minutes before, so knew where I needed my feet for the long reach. Above 2 pads.

Flopped off a few times with crap beta. Mike toproped it with a much better sequence and I copied him. Use your brain, cretin.

First attempt at an E3 Checked the size of gear in the break and then did it first attempt, though I climbed down once to warm my hands and change beta.

Rested before the crux, finally got the move though. Pretty cool route, hard unless you know the sequence...then its still pretty hard!
