Rockfax Description
14m. The large roof under the right-hand side of the buttress is taxing. Climb leftwards across the overhang to the lip then trend back right and pull onto slabby rock. Pre-placed wires to the left and right protected the first ascent though it has been done without. There is small gear in the roof if you can hang on to place it. © Rockfax

The beginning of the end, as the mopping up begins. Climbed in the last light on the last of my skin.

An amazing climb,with an amazing sequence and an amazingly serious outcome if it all goes Pete Tong. Solo seemed the more logically approach....

Too scared to try and flash, glad I didn't cos I fell off first go on top-rope! Death bouldering yay.

Wanted to flash it, but I'm not there yet. Hard starting moves into glory jugs. Awesome stuff.
