Rockfax Description
The broad rib before the major diagonal break gives an excellent pitch of pocket-pulling, easing after half-height. Easier than Spiderman, but only just. © Rockfax

George_Surf 16 Dec, 2018 Lead O/S A bit of a fight. Steep climbing on rock with the texture of glass. The holds are big, but have 30 years of polish, I didn’t really enjoy it except the slab to finish. The line is good and impressive. The crux is the section between the double knee bar, and the knee bar before the slab. Pumpy!!! And cold
