Rockfax Description
One of the West Country's great sport-routes. Low in the grade, but very pumpy and a touch polished. Start beneath a pocketed weakness.
Move up the weakness on good pockets and then swing right to good jams in the horizontal break at 6m. Make a hard move to a good pocket then lurch up the wall, first leftwards and then back right to a final heave onto easier ground. © Rockfax

Best go was to the last bolt, one move from the finishing jug. Gutted but such a good route. Need another go...

Failed the retro flash, and the 2 RPs on this particular day, but felt like I was fucking it up or burning out rather than getting totally spanked like before, which was nice.
