Rockfax Description
A powerful start, tenuous mid section, and difficult finish up the wide crack give this route bags of character. Low in the grade. © Rockfax

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 9 Sep, 2018 Lead RP Went for the onsight, falling at the base of the crack (which - to be fair - I was pretty happy with). Such a good route and not massively soft for the grade (although it is when compared to The Bandits).
