Rockfax Description
Low in the grade and excellent. Start up the shallow awkward left-trending groove in the blunt arete to the overhang. Move right and power through the flake that splits the roof then continue up and left on flat holds to the lower-off on Zombie. © Rockfax

Graeme Hammond 6 Jul, 2016 Lead G/U SHOULD have been felt soft for E2 but having a bad night and completely burnt out and gave up above the roof 1st go. Removed gear on abseil before a 2nd attempt later. Whilst I was pleased to get up the route as the climbing is excellent I am almost more annoyed that I SHOULD have waited for another night and smashed it safely. Style not quite G/U but not RP either.
