Rockfax Description
The groove is the best route of its grade at the crag. Climb the first few feet of A Different Kind of Hypertension before embarking on some committing moves into the groove (peg). Tricky moves up the groove lead to a second peg. Finish direct to a lower-off. There is a direct start which pushes the grade up to E4 6a. © Rockfax

Feeling strong and well psyched for this but there was rain in the air and I downclimbed from the end of the traverse. Yep, definitely the weather... (It actually did start raining as we were packing up gear.)

A tricky, but really good, move at the start.

Fell off the traverse after a foothold flew off (sorry, direct start just got harder).. ate some crisps and got back on it.
