Rockfax Description
Popular, polished and excellent. Climb up to the dong at 4m, hump up this then follow easier-angled rock. The lower-off is most-easily reached by looping left and leaning back right. © Rockfax

Very hard to get to third clip, had to rest on rope. Thereafter really nice climbing.

Brilliant route. Bit too hard for me at the moment but would love to come back stronger in the future to lead.

Probably once a great route, now just a mass of polish it's impossible to trust feet on. 1*

Struggled to get much further than the dong, super fun route to dangle off for a while though - makes a fun swing when you fall off!

Fluffed the onsight here as well. Got to the top of the tufa and couldn't do the next move. After a rest and a faff made it through to the next bolt where I repeated the process. After a rest belaying graham I was surprised to get it clean.
