Rockfax Description
Stunning climbing with fewer helpful holds than you expect, though it is never too desperate. Follow the groove - steep for the grade. Look where you end up on the lower-off! © Rockfax

aharrison24 19 Dec, 2018 Lead β Brilliant route. Had a major battle to get the flash and I was a gibbering, bleeding wreck by the time I clipped the anchor. One of the best routes I've climbed, and arguably more interesting than Tai Chi.

Bloke on a Rope 22 Nov, 2018 Lead O/S What an amazing route defo the best /hardest of the grade on the trip. Was thrown slightly by the tufa running with water low down but only had to use it once or twice before it had dried out higher up. Found it very awkward to get a rest with my long legs so was very happy to find the top crack can be jammed as my arms were screaming! Defo wouldn't argue with a top 50, just need to be careful with the massive blocks at 2/3rds height on the left as they appear to be unattached!
