Rockfax Description
The broad rib is climbed on good but slick pockets until you thought it in the bag, and then there is a horrible precarious move to easy ground. © Rockfax

Steep with Big holds, just not strong enough.

Big smooth holds. Slightly harder than Starman but only because the steep bit is steeper or maybe cos I was getting tired

As good as it looks, just had to claw through the last move, but that just made it the more fun.

Severely hungover from night in Alicante... Worst I have ever climbed...

Fantastic steep pocket pulling that flows really well and has a nice crux to twist up through. Just didn't have the energy left afer several hard days to clean it, fell off crux. Will hopefully be back another time!

After 3 valiant dogged attempts battling with pump I was forced to admit defeat, but ended up coming back after a few days thinking id just put the draws up then work it and ended up sending it on the 1st attempt ^_^ This is my best route iv ever climbed, and also my 3rd outdoor 7a! A magnificent route, although a little polished it doesnt really matter, highly recommended!

aaahhhhh! Gutted I missed the onsight! Very onsightable. A little on the easier side of 7a. Amazing route, not too sharp. Polish, but it doesnt matter.
