Rockfax Description
16m. Delicate dancing, then a butch and bold finale. Trend rightwards up the slab following an undercut flake. Pull over this then tackle the centre of the overhang. Poorly protected and reachy. © Rockfax

Being 5'5 i had to do the shortie variation 6b!! barely held on by the skin of my teeth, let alone hands! Nice climb though.

semi-sprinted to this with the sun rapidly dipping. we both got a lead just in time. Class route but the cool underlap/arch featurre thing didn't really climb as well or how i was expecting.
