Rockfax Description
This magnificent route follows the pocketed crack line above the right-hand side of the ramp. The climbing is physical but well protected where it matters. Start by the grey ramp, climb up then make hard moves across left to some overlaps. Pull over these and layback with difficulty to a large hole (the Mantrap) which provides a welcome rest. More hard climbing gains the pocket line, which is followed to a small ledge below a bulge. Pull left around this and continue up and left to the top. © Rockfax

Ged Desforges ??, 2015 - Fell off trying to get to the mantrap. Hard! Brilliant rock. The thread held me but could do with being replaced. Gear in roof underneath.
