Rockfax Description
Superb technical and fingery moves interspersed with good shakeouts. The lower half is the most demanding. Finishing directly up the final wall is a fluttery 7b. © Rockfax

tom_lewis89 1 Jun Lead This was my fourth go. Technically not a true RP as I got to the finishing jug, went to clip the draw on the finish and the bone was twisted so I dropped the rope. Was absolutely knackered so stepped left close up to the draw to clip but then couldn't find a decent hold to clip off and had to grab the draw to avoid large whipper. Probs wont bother to climb again tho as I did all the moves and there are too many routes to try!

Dale ?Apr, 2015 Lead dog My only sports training for el chorro. Warmed up on gazza stripper and rabble roser then got on this. Tim put the clips in he was tried from a yesterday session in paraselas cave. He scared me a bit made it look hard. So I had a go, got all the moves until the 5th bolt just over third of the way up then ran out of steam completely. Resulting in rests and three falls one being pretty big. O well made it to the top in the end one to come back for with more stamina. Excellent route

SGD 12 Apr, 2014 Lead O/S some hard moves to start but then got easier to a monster rest then it gets hard. So chuffed to flash this, the clips were in which im glad of as I would have struggled to put them in on the lead. 6c+/7a? dont know I'll take either.

Ed Booth 20 Apr, 2011 Lead rpt Lead then top roped 3 more times for stamina training. On the lead stepped left where the 2nd old bolt used to be, but there is a way fo doing the move straight that isnt that bad wich i did on the other goes.also looked at the direct direct finish. i presume the direct finish mentioned in the guide is the one that still goes slightly right as straight up would be at least hard eng 6c.
