Rockfax Description
An interesting route which has a very hard initial section which stops many attempts, and then eases considerably above. At the base of the wall is a cave. Climb up into this and step out rightwards along a break. Make a difficult move up the wall right of the cave, then move up and left across the wall to reach the easy upper section. This can be climbed almost anywhere. © Rockfax

Start not well protected? But eases significantly from the Manzoku ledge

Max beta from Dave unlocked this route. Wouldn't have considered leading otherwise as the low crux looks v unlikely. Basic E2 climbing but E3 I reckon for a proper onsight,

Up and down a few times before committing, then it was easier than expected.

Fell from crux several times, apparently I missed a hold, shame as I was right before the ledge! Gave up, felt tough for E2 though.

We couldn't figure out the start sequence so went right, probably onto manzuku and so probably avoiding the really hard, dangerous scary bit!
