Rockfax Description
16m. The large triangular overhang is a bit of a one-move-wonder. Fix runners to left and right (or better - don't bother) then cross the flakes rightwards to hard moves round the lip and an anticlimactic finish. Low in both grades. © Rockfax

The blinking rope got stuck and got tired trying to pull it round. Cool route, maybe for the lead one day

Stayed a lot calmer than last time, and found a good heel hook to rest before the big push. Was shocked by the slopey top, and fell again. Good fall and unhurt¬if_t=like

Why did I try this? I was enticed into it, but didn't have the balls to climb past the nose of the overhang. Ended up taking the fall there because I didn't fancy a bigger fall later.
