Rockfax Description
This route is most frequently used as a high tide start for Lucky Strike however it is a good pitch in its own right. From the ledge, traverse rightwards along good holds to the beginning of the rising flake line of Lucky Strike. Climb straight up the wall and crack above to the top. © Rockfax
