Rockfax Description
Tendon-twanging technicalities are the order of the day on this fine micro challenge. Start just left of the slim groove of Cocytus.
Boulder up to a pocket and the first bolt. Make progress on tiny crimps to a long reach for a good hold at the base of the steep finishing corner. Lower-off. © Rockfax

Not so bad once you have the beta sussed. Hard on the skin!

Super steady when you work out the beta. Took a chunk out of my pinky finger though after foot popped on my second go. Extended the third bolt using a sling.

great route - put draws in and stripped - conditions were too hot/greasy for slab moves this hard

Desperate, crimpy, finger shredding goodness. By half way my fingers were numb and sensitivity was gone

Slightly annoying to blow the onsight when my foot popped off while stood resting - lowered off then sent.

1 or 2 footholds were a bit greasy after a shower. I wished one of the bolts was about 2 feet lower - felt sketchy with my feet above the previous bolt!

Greasy, jumped off start a couple of times on redpoint, fantastic lunge at top (can be done static on slopers with good conditions).
