Rockfax Description
An intense exercise up the blank-looking wall. Move up and traverse left to a jug before making a difficult move up to the overlap. Go left again to arrive at the easier upper wall. A variation goes up right of the bolt before the traverse 6c. © Rockfax

Much more friendly with the draws in. First time I could not quite make enough upward progress to find balance, completed at the second time if asking.

Did not do it clean. Have to work out how to stay in balance to clip rope at the crux.

A bit of a palaver today, including reversing from the thumb undercut to the ledges to get the clipstick, as I couldn't get stable to place clip!!

The clip after the crux is very tricky, had the pull the rope rh, get the rope between the teeth, swap hands on the undercling and then clip lh, then relax your mind!

Hard crux to contemplate but turning out not all that bad. Required the right strategy, which for me involved getting the crux clipped up and a retreat, before committing to the sequence. Top quality climbing all round!

Led the route but used a clipstick to get the third bolt for the crux. Climbed the route again on toprope but dragged a lead rope and placed all the quickdraws and made all the clips this time. Will return for a redpoint attempt. Fantastic route!
