Rockfax Description
Superb rock. Start up Climb High and then follow a thin left-trending line to better holds and the lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Follows the left hand line out of the Climb High start, up beautiful rock with some hard thin climbing high up - quite morpho reaching the good holds after all the crimps.

Rocky 5 May Lead RP A couple of top ropes to work out the sequence and then managed it first go on the lead. I did think I was going to drop it just at the end of the crux as I got my hands slightly cac-handed but managed to correct! Such a good route; really sequency, with a wet hold thrown in there for good measure! Struggled to get straight on the lead with this one, but not really sure why. The top was a bit run out but was easy but I think this was wigging me out a bit. Glad there is a lot of people saying this is 7a. It felt pretty tough for 6c+ to me!
