Rockfax Description
Start just right of the elephant-like tufa. Do the bouldery start then press on up the steep pocketed seam and juggy wall above. Superb and popular. © Rockfax

2 burns. Crux is on fairly slopey holds at approx 2/3 height, makes an awkward change after all the good pockets.

Massive failure. After working the route last Monday and failing on a couple of redpoint attempts, I just got shut down totally today. Bottom line: I'm simply far too weak to climb this route.

Went for the onsight but pumped out on the jugs after all the hard climbing! Just had enough energy left and sent it as the sun went down. Best 7a I've ever been on. Just awesome!

Wasn't expecting to onsight so didn't take enough draws, which made it interesting higher up. Very good route.

a must do route. Awesome line and continually interesting climbing. One of the best I have ever been on. Such a fight that I crawled into the hole at the top for a 10 min breather before the final slab.

One go to get the draws in then sent! Was close to the onsight but couldn't find the hold! Amazing feature and great climbing tricky to get up onto the tufa!
