17m.

Rockfax Description
A stout exercise with a problematic initial wall, and a gradually steepening finale. Start just right of the Cocytus groove beneath a tiny corner/ramp.
Climb the deceptively-difficult ramp boldly to the first bolt, then make some fierce, fingery moves above this to an easing. The arching wall above is furnished with some decent, but spaced holds. Lower-off. © Rockfax

climbomaniac 26 Apr, 2015 Lead RP climbing to the first bolt onsight is pretty damn bold. Chickened out and preclipped it via cocytus, then fell at crux anyway. After a quick look and putting the rest of the quickdraws in went 2nd go. Superfun climbing!!
