Rockfax Description
Great climbing with a very thin but well protected crux to finish. This is the line to the left of the prominent square pocket in the slanting break. © Rockfax

βeta: Good, characterful, route combining distinct sections of bold and hard climbing. Definitely E2 5c for the combination of the long run-out in the middle and the vicious finish which is at least as hard as anything on Kitten Claws or The Hypocrite.
