Rockfax Description
Brilliant and brutal. The overhanging groove and crack on the right-hand side of the wall is a classic of its genre. Start beneath the crack-line.
Boulder up to the slim overlap and make difficult and wild moves into, up and then out of the groove to a wider crack. Jam this to the top. © Rockfax

Retro redpoint attempt failed going past third bolt

Milkman ??/2015 -

I have put three quick draws on this route to make my redpoint attemps easier. Can people please leave them, of course use them if you wish. I will remove once I have done it.

3rd RP. Brutal seems to be the word. Not sure on grade as I'm mostly a boulderer and I found this pretty powerful/bouldery. 7b+/7c. Can't decide. Very very good though.

A very good route, but never 7b+, a solid 7c in my book. I managed to do it without any jamming, but still quite painful and a proper battle for such a short route. But really good climbing from the word go. A must do route after you ticked all the other classics
