Rockfax Description
An impressive, high standard classic on immaculate rock. Start as for Wogs/White Life.
Follow White Life to its first peg. Steep moves above reach a hole containing an at times prickly bush and a good wire. Fight up through the bush (if it has not been pruned) to the top. © Rockfax

Led this O/S years ago. Different story this time. Pumped out at the final bulge after climbing much too slowly and finished after a rest on a wire. Abbed, stripped route and then slipped off next go near the low thread when foot popped unexpectedly. Did it properly on third attempt!

It's harder than I thought! Some manning up required.

Great climbing and well protected on crux. Nearly dropped at the top with just about enough left in the tank to pull over the bulge

Seconding Dave, managed most of the moves individually but dogged several to work out a sequence. Felt a long way off a clean lead ascent.

Long saved, well savoured, awesome route! Currently for some reason sporting a new and totally redundant in situ thread low down which will doubtless disappear soon.

Lovely route - take some 6mm cord and you can get a thread near the peg.
